Session Title: Fundraising strategies for early stage founders
“Should I bootstrap the development of my product? Can I get that funded by investors? What are the requirements to raise a seed round?”
The seed ecosystem has developed into a complex web of accelerators, seed funds with very different investment and portfolio construction strategies, and other sources of capital. Jeff Clavier, the Founder and Managing Partner of SoftTech VC will lead a masterclass on the topic – clarifying funding sources and expectations, as well as how investors analyze opportunities. Jeff, one of the original super angels in the Valley, raised one of the first micro VC funds in the Valley and has helped shape the seed industry.
