Securing early-stage investment capital is difficult even during the best of times, but during the pandemic, many startups have found it to be downright impossible. Without the face-to-face interaction that normally precedes a formal pitch, developing the trust necessary to both make the ask (for founders) and make the investment (for funders), has been challenging in the extreme. In this program, we’ll hear from two early-stage tech companies and learn about how they overcame these hurdles to get funded during the pandemic. Join us on December 8th as we discuss the best practices for investing and fundraising during the pandemic.
Robbie Felton, IntusCare
Adam Alpert, Pangea
