A business angel, a venture capitalist and a corporate executive talk about what they look for when evaluating technology investments.
Scientists and investors seldom speak the same language; that’s part of the problem in getting new ideas out of the labs and into the markets. This session brings together three well-known investors in technology to ask: What is it they expect from a researcher or engineer, anyway? What do they look for in an idea or team that approaches them for backing? Is it different for an angel, VC or corporate investor? This panel will look into their souls for what motivates them to put money on the table – and provide some tips from them on how to talk to investors, and win.
