Workshop: Basics of Innovation Capital

  • Why is funding innovation different than just writing lots of small checks?   
  • How is innovation capital (including venture/angel funding) structured differently from other forms of capital? 
  • What are the lessons of the Silicon Valley venture capital industry, and can they be translated to other markets?

This four-hour workshop takes place before the start of the inaugural Global Innovation Summit on Monday, July 16.  Participants will review the entire life cycle of the innovation capital continuum, from R&D to proof-of-concept, commercialization, seed/angel funding, venture capital, and other forms. We will provide practical tools for attendees to frame, develop, and implement these capital structures in new markets.  

Instructors include: Greg Horowitt (T2 Venture Capital), Bruce Jenett (DLA Piper), and several other speakers with expertise in the field.

The fee is $95.  Seats are limited.  REGISTER ASAP at: http://gisworkshop.eventbrite.com/
