As part of The Hatchery program to help companies succeed we will be holding a regular limited seating series of investors, serial entrepreneurs, and key executives that can help active companies gain insights to the challenges they face NOW.
These are intimate sessions offering those who attend insights and dialog. Panel discussions are great, but often the issues are specific.
Who should attend: those raising venture funding. We will discuss how VC's look at deals, how they think about who to put money into. How a vetting process works. Valuations and term sheets.
