Event Details

In this volatile and uncertain market, we will explore topics including what investors are now indexing towards for Seed/Series A/Series B, methods to drive alignment across stakeholders through this market transition and uncertainty, things founders can control to increase their probability of success, and the dynamics between “growth-oriented” and “performance based” team cultures.
