- Sign Up: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/international-vc-night-tickets-354456788797
PS: Space is somewhat limited, so come early :)
Featuring a talk and a panel with international VC investors, we give an overview of the do’s and don'ts when seeking capital from funds abroad.
In the panel, we dive deeper into current market dynamics and their fundraising implications, as well as generally explore the best practices of storytelling towards VC funds.
We aim to make the session as interactive and helpful to the audience as possible, so we encourage guests to ask questions throughout. There will also be time for a Q&A and mingling towards the end.
If you are an entrepreneur looking for insights on how to attract strong international investors, and get a nuanced view into how such investors evaluate prospective investments, please save the date.
Coffee and pizza will be served as long as supply lasts. A bar is available for additional purchases.
PS: A photographer will be taking pictures at the event.
