Venture Funding Hits a Lull. Now What?

Date TBA

When the tech deal flow pipeline is wide open, you can seemingly get advice on how to fund your startup from just about anyone. But when venture funding hits a periodic slowdown, you’d think it was impossible to get proper backing, particularly if you live anywhere other than Silicon Valley or Silicon Alley. That’s simply not the case, although founders and startup executives do need to be more pragmatic in their approach. This session features Austin startup leaders who got funding deals done during lean times, a local VC who always continues business as usual, and a wealth of lessons learned in a midsized market that can be replicated anywhere.
