FOUNDERS

Are you curious about the questions investors will ask when you're pitching them? Interested in connecting with investors and other like-minded founders? Want to learn more about Acceleprise? Join us on Tuesday, September 17th, 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm.

The companies pitching will be from Acceleprise's 11th San Francisco cohort. They will pitch to a distinguished panel of high-profile investors, answer follow-up questions and receive real-time feedback.

You'll have the opportunity to watch founders pitch, learn about what investors are looking for in a pitch, get insight into the types of questions they have, meet leading seed-stage investors and the Acceleprise team.

This is a founder (and aspiring founder) only event. We're accepting RSVPs up to the day but will be reviewing and curating attendees to make sure we have the best experience for everyone involved.
