Teaching the IREX Young Leaders of the Americas VC Funding Seminar

IREX Logo

Today, I was happy to act as lead venture capital educator with Blue Mesa Ventures for the International Research & Exchanges Board (IREX) Young Leaders of the Americas Entrepreneur Funding Seminar. We had a great group of 120 early-mid stage entrepreneurs from Centra and South America, at the beginning of their entrepreneurship fellowship with U.S. Dept of State supported IREX.

I was happy to present to the group on topics surrounding VC Funding:

  • Positioning yourself within US Venture
  • How to get your foot in the door with a VC firm in the U.S.
  • What questions can you expect from potential funders.
  • How to differentiate your business from others.
