Normally, you’re the nervous entrepreneur pitching VC’s. Well, at this event at the stunning WeWork roof, the investors will be pitching you. Each investor will very briefly introduce themselves. They’ll talk a little about their background, ticket sizes, sectors, investment thesis and portfolio. Then, the stage is yours. An audience Q&A will follow, as YOU the audience will grill our panel of investors.
Want to guarantee a LIVE question to our panel below? We’re taking only 3 questions in advance. So, get in early and ping [masked] with your question. If accepted, you’ll take the mic, introduce your company LIVE and fire your question to our investors on the night.
