Event description

Description

Tech isn’t the only industry in which innovative ideas merit investor support. During this panel, we'll learn what investors want to see in fields such as food and beverage, travel, apparel, beauty, and media.

This event is great for the non-tech entrepreneur that is excited to create a company that can scale and go the distance!

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.
