New for 2014: Venture-Backed Executive Workshop
The Venture-Backed Executive Workshop is a rare opportunity for venture-backed portfolio companies to discuss with their peers the next phase of their growth and operational strategy, after receiving VC funding.

Key topics covered will include:

  • Best practices in managing the VC relationship
  • Keeping up the growth and innovation momentum after VC funding
  • Preparing for the next stage

The Venture-Backed Executive Workshop is complimentary. As there are only 40 seats available, all registrations will be reviewed and approved by the VC Forum Taskforce.
