A Venture Fundable Startup Idea
At this event, we will have a special speaker, a Silicon Valley insider speaking about :
“What is a venture fundable startup idea”.
Vladimir De Franceschi
Founder, De Franceschi & Boray
Every entrepreneur with a great business idea wants the chance to get before venture capital investors or angel funding investors and be awarded a large sum of business capital. Alas, only a small number of all potential small businesses actually get the nod from venture capital or angel funding investors. What does it take for a business to make the narrow cut and find themselves on the short list for angel funding?
