  • Fundraising is one of the hardest challenges a founder will face when building a startup. For many, it’s a necessary step in reaching the next level of company growth.

    While many founders may be looking to meet as many VCs and investors as they can, it’s important that they consider the role that those investors will play in their startup journey.

    Recently, we’ve seen many startups raise not just from traditional VC, but from angels and funds that offer more than just cash, but also experience. These “strategic investors” add so much value to their portfolio companies because of aligned goals and expertise. Most of the time these investors are previous founders or operators that could help solve issues you will come across as you grow.

    But finding these investors/operators and building those relationships is hard if you don’t have the network or know where to look.

    On June 21st we’re going to discuss how you can find strategic investors and why they should be a focus for you as you start your fundraising journey.

    Join us at 10 am as we sit down with Sree Kolli, Co-founder of Conduit, and Aubrie Pagamo is a Partner, Operator and Investor at Corigin Ventures and dive into:

    • Why it’s smart to find operators turned angels/VCs as investors in your org
    • What could make pitching to these types of investors different than other funds
    • Why operators turn VC

    We’ll also do audience Q&A after the conversation!

  • Great companies hire great people. They also have to know how to manage and lead those new team members. This panel will answer some of the questions founders and sales leaders have as they start hiring for their team. When should I hire a salesperson? What qualities do I look for? How do I manage them and what kind of goals should we be setting?

    We’ll discuss this and more with Jason Lalk, VP of Sales at CloserIQ, who’s grown his sales team to over 40 people globally (all without outside capital), and how they’ve helped and advised startups grow their sales teams to 100+.

  • Becoming a Thought Leader

    Thought leadership can transform your personal and company brand and elevate your startup to new heights through credibility and exposure.

    It’s often a focus for many entrepreneurs as they build their startups — but becoming a trusted and well-known thought leader is hard and could take a lot of time.

    Many become thought leaders by writing blogs, newsletters, and books. These are all ways to build your credibility and influence with your audience.

    But another way to really build up your influence and cement yourself as a thought leader is by speaking at events.

    For many entrepreneurs, they may find it even harder to book a speaking engagement than it is to secure a press mention. For those that are looking for ways to expand their reach and become thought leaders, join us on July 28th as we chat with Caitlin Bart, Founder and CEO of a boutique PR agency, cred. cred focuses solely on building thought leadership through events and has worked with 200+ brands like Pinterest, Flexport and more.

    We’ll discuss how you can use events to boost your brand, and how to secure speaking engagements (both digitally and IRL when those are allowed again!).
