About this event

Securing Partnerships: Best Tips to Deploy Services and Products

After incorporation, startups face a bevy of challenges such as onboarding employees, advisors, and launching and scaling their products and/or services. To gain recurring revenue so as to justify a healthy raise, many startups enter into partnerships with larger companies and find that they have little negotiating power over some of the terms. Join us for a panel on how you can best position your startup to enter into partnerships, what kinds of commercial contract terms you should be aware of, and how the recurring revenue can position you for your next raise.

Join us for an incredible evening where you will hear from five awesome San Francisco startups—and YOU pick the winner!

Founders Live is an unforgettable happy hour competition sweeping the globe where up to five handpicked companies take the hot seat, with only 99 seconds to pitch their company and describe their value proposition in front of an eager audience. After the pitches and audience Q&A, the crowd will vote on a winner who will not only receive an award, but recognition from the crowd and also the opportunity to talk more about their product or service. So bring your friends and coworkers, grab a drink, get to know your local entrepreneurs and vote for what you think will be the next big thing... built in the Bay Area.

The Founders Live Winners Package includes $10,000 in AWS credits as well as the opportunity to compete in the Founders Live Prime Time global tournament.


Founders Live has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide an incredible offer for startups pitching at a Founders Live event. "Amazon Web Services provides startups with low cost, easy to use infrastructure needed to scale and grow any size business. AWS Activate is a program designed to provide startups with resources they need to get started on AWS." We are excited to announce ALL presenting companies who are chosen to give their 99-second pitch at a Founders Live event receive $5,000 credit towards their web hosting on Amazon.
