The morning activities included two different sessions with VC panels discussing Emerging Trends and Seed and Series A Financing, and there was an opportunity to sign up for two lightning rounds – a random selection from the participants to “pitch” your story. In addition, attendees were also given the chance to each meet with two VCs of our choice at the Venture Fair.
Kerri and I decided to divide and conquer by attending separate sessions to give ourselves a better chance to be selected during the lightning rounds. Neither one of us was picked during the first lightning round, but we were both selected during the second lightning round. If you think about it, the odds of being picked were crazy that one of us would be picked, but both of us…all I can say is WOW.
The trip was amazing, and we were fortunate to make connections with some fabulous individuals. We’ll be back New York!!!
