Venture Capital dollars are flowing into Seattle-area companies in near-record numbers, but most of the cash is going to later-stage startups - especially those with a B2B focus. According to Pitchbook 2017’s report, Seattle is ranked 6th in the US Venture ecosystem, significantly behind San Francisco, San Jose, New York, Boston and Los Angeles – meaning that the pool of potential investors is smaller.

So, what do you do if you’re an early stage B2C startup in Seattle? What does your fundraising roadmap look like? Hear directly from local angel investors and a VC active in the B2C sector. Learn 1st hand what attracted these investors to the Retail, Food & Beverage and Fashion startups in their portfolio, what is a typical path from initial contact to a successful raise, which KPIs are important to track by sector, what support services are offered to position startups for success and what to expect beyond Seattle.

If you are contemplating, embarking or in the midst of fundraising, this panel should be high on your list to attend.
