VC One-on-One Coaching with Hummer Winblad Venture Partners
For SDForum Members Only!
This is a unique series where you can have individual meetings with a top venture capital firm in Silicon Valley. These meetings are designed to help founders and CEO’s of early stage companies identify partnerships, obtain industry insight and perspective, and exchange relevant ideas and contacts.
These 30 minute 1 on 1 sessions are not to be perceived as a funding exercise, but more of a discussion session that promises to be good use of an entrepreneur’s time.
If you are an entrepreneur or a CEO of an early stage company, please submit a one page summary of your business for selection.
To sign up, please email Leigh Ann Gilson
