We're thrilled to announce our special Ask a VC event! We'll have (at least) seven awesome Venture Capital (VC) and Angel Investors there answering your questions on what is VC, the process for getting VC, what investors look for, and more. Not only will you get awesome content and insight from investors, but half of the session will be "Ask me Anything" style, where you can interact directly with the investors. On top of that, we'll have fifteen spots for those who want to make a one-minute Lightning Shout Out about what they are working on and get direct feedback from investors and the audience. If you're interested in that, just indicate that when you sign up.

The event costs $15 to cover food and venue expenses, but you'll get that money back (mostly) if you attend the big MAVA TechBuzz ( event later that day in Georgetown! Use the code MAVATechBreakfastTB and get $10 off the TechBuzz Registration (that's an 11% discount) when you register. So, TWO awesome VC / investor events in one day and a spectacular deal.
