About this event

Join Valence Funding Network through our Founders Only event series for a panel discussion around alternatives to traditional venture funding, highlighting opportunities for founders at accelerators, incubators, and studios.

T.A. McCann, Managing Director at Pioneer Square Labs, will kick-off the event with a presentation on the value of studios and accelerators and their unique approach to partnering with founders. T.A. will then be joined by Kelli Jones, Managing Partner at Sixty8 Capital and Co-Founder of Be Nimble, and Eric Tobias, Partner at High Alpha, to weigh in on their experiences as both operators and investors in the space. The discussion will feature tangible advice for evaluating whether a less traditional path to venture funding may be a fit for your business, tips for preparing applications, best practices for pitching, and more. There will be ample time for audience Q&A as well.
