About this talk

Fundraising is a full-time job on top of running a company. How will you raise the capital you need to catapult your company's growth?

In this panel discussion, experts will walk you through basic requirements a company needs for Series A venture capital investment and when you should start raising for your Series A.

We will also hear directly from VCs on what they look for when deciding to invest in a company, drawing upon their experience working with talented founders.
