The Conference on Post-Seed Round Funding

The mission of the inaugural “Post-Seed” Conference is to bring together the best and brightest minds around early-stage financing for a one-day focused event, targeting investors, early-stage founders, and members of the startup press.

Increasingly, early-stage founders have many financing options at their disposal. From crowdfunding, to debt financing, to a vibrant angel investing environment, the options available to founders are plentiful. However, for a variety of reasons, larger venture capital firms have largely elected to write bigger checks slightly later in the life cycle of a company. The result: a significant gap between seed financings and larger institutional investments. This gap is “Post-Seed.”

Startup Fundamentals: Doing a Startup Right

For entrepreneurs, deciding to form a company, getting involved with a start-up, scaling and getting the right people on the bus (and compensating them), presents enormous challenges. Navigating around legal, co-founder splits of the pie, business strategy, fund raising and other issues can often seem overwhelming, and traps for the unwary or uninformed are numerous.
