Salon D
500 E 4th St


Experienced entrepreneur, Rebecca Taylor, now Principal Investor at Shell Technology Ventures ,will go through her top ten list of what makes a great technology startup.

Shell has been in corporate venturing since 1998 and has made numerous investments in early stage technology companies, including spin-offs. Like many in the audience, Shell has gone through the trials and tribulations of creating startups, and have – sometimes painfully – experienced what it takes to build a successful one. While also failing several times.
These lessons have been applied to the new Shell Technology Ventures which launched in 2013. Rebecca will share the benefit of 25+ years of learning in this space and present ten rules for building a successful startup and obtaining financing from a strategic investor like Shell.

Presented by Shell Technology Ventures.
