Innovation Pavilion 9200 East Mineral Avenue , Centennial, (map)

A unique opportunity for entrepreneurs and the startup community to “get real” with investors and influencers in the world of startup capital. Each session features a leader in the investment community, with dialog that cuts to the chase and close-up opportunities to get straight answers to real world questions. Get a handle on the thought process from the other side of the table, with knowledge that empowers regarding key capital-raising topics:

- Clarity about what matters to investors

- Insights on a case-by-case basis

- Best practices to get your round right

- Risk and return scenarios that actually happen - What is true “value add” and how to get it

- Investor types and targeting in the real world
