Raising venture funding can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Our panel “Demystifying Venture Capital” will answer your questions about getting the capital you need to level up your startup.

Join us at Cross Campus DTLA for an in-depth discussion on venture capital with our partners WavemakerTenOneTen Ventures, Two Lines LLC, Backstage Capital and Greycroft. Our partners have invested in companies such as Venmo, HopSkipDrive, The Riveter, RadPad, Mindbody, and more.

You’ll walk away with:

  • Understanding the different funding stages

  • Knowing which venture capital firms are best for your startup

  • How do VCs decide on which companies to invest in

  • What to do if you get a “not now” answer from a VC

  • How to determine how much capital you should take

  • Understanding the expectations after closing a round

  • Understanding your term sheet

  • What should you expect from an investor before handing over equity

  • How to leverage non-VC relationships that could lead to a meeting

  • What happens if you get acquired

Following the panel will be a brief Q&A, food, drinks and time to network. Bring your questions and good energy.

It’s time to create something great, and we are here to help you.
