We have a program-packed day tomorrow, and here’s a preview of just some of the experts on hand and the topics they’ll cover. Check the event agenda to plan your day, and don’t fret about schedule conflicts. Your pass includes video-on-demand, so you won’t miss a moment.
Pro Tip: Times listed in the agenda will automatically adjust to your geographic location.
How to Line Up Your Growth with Your Goals: Unlike giant brands, startups need to use their marketing spend wisely and efficiently. Sound Ventures’ Susan Su is a growth marketing expert and will share how to define growth based on your startup’s goals, and how to take a framework-based approach to growth, rather than relying on old playbooks that aren’t relevant.
Product-Market Fit is All About Tempo: Sequoia’s Mike Vernal understands that the most successful companies are not necessarily the ones with a great idea, but the ability to learn from their customers and adapt quickly. Hear this seasoned venture partner explain how customer feedback loops, product iteration tempo and mindset not only affect fundraising, but the overall trajectory of the company.
How to Get Ready to Fundraise: The process of fundraising doesn’t start with your first meeting. Setting a timeline, preparing your deck, warming up investors and understanding your strengths are key to a successful fundraise, and need to happen well before you start filling up your calendar. Cleo Capital founding partner Sarah Kunst will outline how to get ready to fundraise and answer your most burning questions.
Don’t forget about our other breakout sessions. You’ll hear from folks at SeedInvest, Dell for Entrepreneurs, UserTesting, Movile, Pilot and oVice. Plus, we built time for networking right into the schedule.
