Description

"The First Dollar: Strategies and Ethics of Seed-Stage Fundraising"

What is the right way to raise a seed round? Even as founders strive to focus on innovation and execution, they must make myriad decisions, big and small, on fundraising. Whom should I pitch first? What's the smallest check I should accept? Do I price the round or raise on a convertible note, and on what terms? Join us as healthcare product designer, entrepreneur, and investor Ryan Pierce tests conventional wisdom against a survey of his peers, considers the ethics of taking early-stage money, and shares his own lessons from both sides of the table.
