6/28, Virtual Ask Me Anything: Investing in Startups: Who, What, Why, When, Which, and How?  

I’m participating in a virtual “Ask Me Anything” on Tuesday, June 28, 5 pm to 6 pm ET. You can register via this link.

Our host is Silley Circuits, a NY community for start-ups and businesses in media, data, technology, finance, advertising, fashion, food, retail and more. At their events, they raise funds for Stop Soldier Suicide, The New York Writers’ Hall of Fame, and other charities.

Here’s the ad:


The current tech stock bust creates recruiting opportunities for startups due to layoffs; fewer and weakened competitors; attractive valuations for investors and partners; and an inflow of potential founders who have lost their golden handcuffs. David Teten is our guest for an “Ask me Anything”.  He’ll speak very briefly about his background and view on the market, and then take any questions you have.

David has written extensively about best practices in investing and in building tech companies. Check out his Syllabus for how to launch, manage, and invest a VC fund and his Best Practices for Tech Founders. We strongly recommend prepare your questions in advance.
