Panel discussion with: Howard Hartenbaum - August Capital, Josh Kopelman - First Round Capital Mike Maples - Maples Investment Dave Strohm - Greylock
Moderator: Ravi Belani - Draper Fisher Jurvetson Is venture capital still the lifeblood of start-up companies? With so much conflicting advice on funding needs, this whole raising-money thing can seem a little like applying to college: Everyone has a different idea about what it takes to succeed. Is it as simple as a having a defendable technology or business model, paying customers, a proven team, a solid business plan and a clear exit strategy to garner interest from venture capitalists? What is the best route for you? Should you bootstrap to build personal equity in your venture or seek funding at an early stage? Come listen to the view points of successful institutional venture capitalists and angel investors. 6:00PM to 6:30PM - Registration and Networking 6:30PM to 7:45PM - Main Event 7:45PM to 8:30PM - Networking $35 Early Bird Registration by January 20 $50 Pre-Registration by January 26 Limited Seating.
