The rules behind Startup funding change as quickly as the technology does. So how do you best position your Startup and yourself to raise capital?

Our June Meetup will consist of a 40 minute talk followed by a 20 minute Q&A with Brian Watson, who is a Venture Capitalist at Union Square Ventures and early supporter of The Phat Startup! Brian has been a member of the USV investment team since 2012 and has learned from some of the most prominent investors in the game. It's time to bring that knowledge to our family of hustlers!















Besides learning from the best, Brian has become instrumental in helping the NYC tech scene represent. Brian once told us, "You can't invest in the internet, unless you live in the internet!" Join us as we discuss how you can do the same and take it to the next level!

You will learn:

- How to position your Startup for funding

- About the current rules of engagement in regards to funding

- About the metrics that matter the most to Venture capitalists

- How to pitch/approach an investor
