Peter Craddock of Shoreline Venture Management, Bob McDonald of R.A. McDonald Company, and Philip Engelhardt of PhilQuo Ventures share knowledge and ideas.

A Founders Space Roundtable is a monthly meeting where founders get together to share knowledge, solve problems and make connections. Each Roundtable tackles a specific subject, such as raising capital, negotiating term sheets, attracting talent, creating marketing plans, and filing patents.  The session begins with industry experts providing detailed advice.  Then we roll up our sleeves, gather into small groups, and help each other with issues we’re facing.
