If you are an early startup founder, get excited, because you will not just see how the successful founders pitched their way to something big, you will also learn the pro’s and con’s and do’s and don’ts in fundraising from four different types of investors. It is not the average boring pitching events you see in the valley every day. We embrace the well-known game rule here, go big or go home.
We will allow a limited number of seed stage startups to pitch, and receive speed mentoring right on the spot.(If you are in IOT, AI, BlockChain business, and want to apply to pitch, please send your startup name and homepage to Now 2 spots left. Hurry up! )

1) What’s the difference between VC and CVCs, (Target, stage )

3)Foreign funds VS. US funds — not just about going into a certain market
