Details

In our continuous effort to strengthen and expand the Philly innovation community, we are launching a new program called "Fireside Chats". Fireside Chats will be an ongoing series of enlightening discussions, debates and presentations about entrepreneurship, startups, tech, and venture capital from the foremost thinkers in the industry. Our goal is to educate and inspire, while you continue to imagine and invent. We welcome our new partner in this endeavor, the Wharton Small Business Development Center.

Produced by Philly Tech Meetup (http://phillytechmeetup.com) and Wharton SBDC (http://whartonsbdc.wharton.upenn.edu).
Hosted at The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania (http://www.wharton.upenn.edu).

NEW MONEY. NEW INVESTMENT MODELS. NEW RULES.
A NEW VC PARADIGM?

We invite you to participate in a discussion about:

• the state of venture capital today,
• why VCs are underperforming the public market,
• are we in a tech startup and vc bubble,
• how new investment programs are transforming investing,
• the big shift from investors being bankers to operators,
• where the most exciting disruption is happening,
• how to increase your chances of getting funded,
• and much, much more.
