NYC Blend’s third event is focused on increasing transparency in capital raising through panel discussions with diverse VCs and founders.
We’ll kick off the evening with a VC panel featuring representatives from Backstage Capital, Precursor Ventures, Insight Venture Partners, and IA Capital Group to address access and challenges around the funding process, moderated by Arthena founder Madelaine D’Angelo.
In-between panels, community partner StartOut will share an overview of their programming and efforts to connect LGBTQ entrepreneurs to empower great leaders and businesses.
Following, we’ll host a fireside chat moderated by Geri Kirilova of Laconia Capital Group with Finhabits’ Carlos Garcia, FORTË's Lauren Foundos, Wethos’ Rachel Renock, and Bowery Valuations' John Meadows to hear more about their experiences and recommended best practices in raising funding.
The evening will conclude with open networking and founders are encouraged to connect with VCs in attendance.
