Turning the Tables: Entrepreneur to Investor

Speakers

An Endevor Insight analysis showed that of the top-tier VC firms, 40% of original partners were former entrepreneurs, and over 60% had entrepreneurial backgrounds. What does it take to make the transition from entrepreneur to investor? What advantages does that unique perspective provide and how can you leverage your entrepreneurial background to make a meaningful impact on other early and growth stage companies? Entrepreneurs turned investors will offer their insights into what made them successful on both sides of the table.
