Event description

Description

Raising the right amount of money with the right investors is critical to the health and growth of your business, yet investors are regularly barraged with requests for pitch meetings. How do you get your startup noticed through the noise?

This panel discussion will focus on the tactics and behaviors that will allow you to build strong relationships with potential investors before it's time to pitch. Featuring a panel of people from both sides of the aisle, including serial entrepreneurs, local venture capitalists, and high-volume networkers, we'll unpack how to build authentic relationships with investors and how to evaluate their fit as a partner in your business.

This event is part of the Founders & C-Suite Track at Startup Boston Week 2019. And is perfect for companies in the Idea Stage and Early Stage.
