There is no crying in baseball, and there are certainly no shortcuts to building a successful startup. But, thanks to TC Early Stage 2021: Marketing and Fundraising July 8-9, you don’t have to reinvent the Monster Wheel.
This two-day bootcamp gives early stage founders (pre-seed through Series A) access to leading experts and top investors in the startup ecosystem. They will host a series of interactive question-and-answer sessions focused on core topics, such as pitch development, fundraising, branding, growth marketing and more. Take a look at the agenda.
Here are some of the many reasons to save time in your busy schedule and attend this completely virtual event.
1. Because your contemporaries say so
Early Stage 2020 was a great opportunity to hear from seasoned startup founders talk about their experiences and how they overcame many of the same challenges that I faced back then and that I am going through now. It’s like a mini masterclass in entrepreneurship. – Ashley Barrington, Founder, MarketPearl.
Sequoia Capital’s session, Start with Your Customer, explored the benefits of storytelling and customer persona creation. I pitched the idea to my team and we set up a storytelling to help onboard new clients. This one session has transformed my business. – Chloe Leaetoa, Founder, Socicraft.
2. Connect with the community and opportunities
Founding a startup can be frustrating and sometimes lonely. It helps bounce back ideas from other founders who know exactly what you’re going through. You never know where those common connections can lead, and a big rolodex is always good for business.
