Startup Study Hall with Jackie DiMonte
Wed, April 5, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM EDT
Topic: Who, what, when, where and how?!
When it comes time to decide if or when to take on outside capital, what do you need to think about? We'll answer the questions: Who are VCs? What types of companies get funded? Where and when do you fundraise? And how the heck do you get it done?

Thanks to the generosity of our incredible volunteers, Startup Study Halls are free to attend. Because the classes are small, and waiting lists are common, we ask that if you register - you commit to filling your seat. If you register and do not attend, you will lose the privilege of attending for the remainder of the semester.
Diversity is a competive advantage. Men and women are invited to attend all Startup Ladies events.
