Is Raising Money Right for You?
Thursday, June 20, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
Redwood City, CA
Where do you find the funding to get an early stage startup going? Investors? Your own bank account? (A crazy mad uncle?)
Raising funds--whether on your own or from others--can accelerate growth. But it may also come with some strings attached.
Hear the perspectives of the real pros:
Jennifer Carolan is Managing Partner of NewSchools Venture Fund’s Seed Fund, which currently has 17 edtech companies in its portfolio. Wikispaces is not one of them; in fact, co-founders Adam Frey and James Byers have never taken a dime of institutional funding, which they argue is critical to their success.
They’ll take the stage to offer their perspectives on the questions above and weigh the pros and cons of going after VC money. EdSurge’s Betsy Corcoran will moderate.
Seats are limited at this special event, which is co-hosted by EdSurge and nestGSV. For that reason, we're charging $10 fee per ticket. Drinks, light snacks, and a hearty dollop of knowledge will be provided.
This event is co-hosted with:
