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 minutes 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.
