Feedback form is now closed.

Do you bootstrap or fund? Do you have to choose one or the other? If you raise money, when do you do it? How do you land a pitch, and an investment later on? What are VCs and student-run funds all about? Do YOU want to be on the other side of the table? This panel gives you a broad overview of what Venture Capital is and how it is situated within the startup landscape. It is for student entrepreneurs who are interested in gaining more insight into how VCs evaluate startups and what they could do to reach out to potential VC investors, as well as for students who are interested in learning more about job opportunities as a VC.
