Let’s face it — entrepreneurial success often comes down to two critical things: having a great idea and getting it funded. But the steps you take and decisions you make in between are often just as important. From the point of your first ‘aha’ moment and throughout the basic life-cycle of your startup, the process of creating and sustaining a profitable venture is filled with financial, legal and emotional stress. Hear from a panel of notable inventors and startup founders and one of the largest early-stage technology VC firms in the U.S., to learn how sound vision, risk-taking and funding strategies can guide you from idea to successful venture.
