The first day is devoted to highly interactive sessions on topics such as market positioning, growth marketing, content development and, everyone’s favorite topic, fundraising.
Here are just two perfect examples of the subjects and talents involved.
Growth Marketing 101: “Growth” is a concept that is inconsistently defined and operationalized across all startups. Greylock Partner, Mike Duboe has built growth teams in early stage and growth / IPO stage companies and will discuss how companies should think about designing the organization for growth, best practices in setting on the scale of performance marketing practices and how investors deconstruct healthy or unhealthy growth. .
How Founders Can Think Like a VC: While there is more capital than ever flowing in the market, the world of fundraising can still seem like a black box to many founders. Hear Lisa Wu from Norwest Venture Partners explain how founders can get into the mind of a VC, defining their business story in terms VCs love. Be the ball, as they say.
Don’t miss the breakout sessions from Dell Technologies, UserTesting, Movile, Pilot and oVice. You will find topic descriptions and timetables (specific to your location) in the event calendar.
The second day is devoted to the pitch-off. Tune in as 10 early-stage startups take the virtual stage and present their best five-minute pitch to a global audience of investors, TC publishers, press and event attendees. A five-minute question-and-answer session with the judges follows this speech.
Our crackerjack judges – Ben Sun, Primary Venture Partners; Leah Solivan, Fuel Capital and Shardul Shah, Index Ventures – will provide invaluable commentary. Who knows? You might hear tips that will help you turn your pitch deck into a fundraising machine.
