Our speaker for this edition of the EB Meetup is Chuck Goldman. Chuck will be talking about the basics of venture capital and what types of things you should be doing if you are looking to raise money for your company.
Chuck founded Apperian in 2009, and has spent the past four years working with Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Bessemer Venture Partners, North Bridge Venture Partners, Intel Capital, Launch Capital and CommonAngels to build Apperian into the market leader in Mobile Application Management (MAM). As Apperian's founder and early CEO, Chuck raised over $28 million in venture capital and built a mobile ecosystem of developers, brands, retailers, enterprises and integrators.
Prior to Apperian, Chuck was a Director at Apple. There, he helped launch the iPhone in 2007 and managed Apple’s iPhone Enterprise Beta Program. Chuck also served as Apple's project lead to bring Steve Job's vision of 1:1 computing in education to life by deploying the State of Maine's 1:1 Laptop Program. Prior to Apple, Chuck founded and sold two technology companies.
