Join us for Startup Happy Hour, powered by StartupSac and the Carlsen Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship, featuring a panel discussion on what seed stage investors expect.

For Startup Happy Hour this month StartupSac and the Carlsen Center are convening a conversation on seed stage funding. This event will feature a panel of early stage investors. Startup founders want money from investors, but what do they want from you?
Join us for a panel discussion where we explore topics such as:

  • What changes has a virtual world, brought on by Covid, brought to the game?
  • What has changed as far as how founders connect with and pitch investors?
  • What new opportunities and challenges are there?
  • What do early stage seed investors expect from a startup at that stage?
  • What amount of revenue do investors want to see at seed stage?
  • Why is it important to stay in communication with investors?
  • What defines each funding stage?
