Discussions have always been geared towards educating entrepreneurs on the things that are most important to investors when they’re considering an investment. They’ll talk about how you should consider building your business from the hands on experience they have with their portfolio companies and the different strategies on growth and revenue development. Also, well talk about the best and worst things an entrepreneur can do to get an investors attention during a pitch and, of course, the best ways to reach out to these and other investors in the future.
