How to Finance your Startup -  Hank Barry (ex CEO of Napster)

Learn all the funding options you have for your venture. Learn how to get funded through seed, angel investing and venture financing from the former CEO of Napster.

Hank, currently a partner at Sidley Austin, has over 20 years experience in funding early stage companies, both as a lawyer and as a partner at Hummer Winblad Venture Partners.

    Can someone give me the info on the entrepreneur who is developing the dating app that got selected to receive some munchies?

    Hank was awesome. Very informative, helpful, and willing to connect. I'm wondering if the 17 page Venture Capital guide he mentioned can be posted rather than everyone emailing him.

    Great organization, presentation and food choices. Met a couple of very inspirational and interesting founders. Definitely returning to future events.

      Thank you Elijah! It was great meeting you. I'm so glad you enjoyed the event and was able to get good networking as well. See you again soon :)

  • Raghav G.

    I think the event itself, the organizing, the networking, the attendance was great as usual. However Hank Barry's presentation itself was really not as expected. I will continue to attend more Igniter meetups, but I hope next time onwards the organizers can vet the presentation content in advance to make sure it matches the event description. In any case, thank you for a great event.

      Raghav, I'm glad you joined the event! Thank you for the extremely valuable feedback. We will take that into consideration next time. Thanks for being part of the Ignite community, and see you again soon :)

    Mr. Hank Barry was professional and knowledgeable and the presentation was great. However, it would be better if he could cover more details about Seed, Angel, and Venture Financing, (when is the right time to seek funding, how to start the process, and where to find them, etc.).
