Our ProductTank Tel Aviv meetup on Sunday July 31, will deal with the relationship between Product Management and Fundraising: “From The Money and The Maker”.

At ProductTank Tel Aviv July meetup, we will put top investors and an entrepreneur on stage and ask them questions that nobody else will.
They will reveal the secret of how much (if at all) is it important to communicate Product Vision when fundraising and will share from their own experience, presenting both investors and entrepreneurs perspectives of some of Israel’s biggest fundraising rounds.

This is more a 'how to think about products' meetup than 'how to’ templates.
