Panel Discussion: How to raise funds (Pre Series A/Series A) for Deep Technology (AI/ML/IOT) Growth Companies
Presented by: FormulateIP, TEC Edmonton, ChapterAI
Evening of 19th November belongs to deep technology Entrepreneurs and growth companies!
Deep Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Internet of Things (IOT) are quickly becoming foundational technologies for any business. They have begun addressing a variety of issues around using deep technologies to make software and processes much more efficient.
Investing in deep tech growth company requires a different playbook due to its nascent systems and complexity. Many deep tech products are still in their conceptual and prototypical phase, and are still years away from viable commercialization. And because they comprise layers of hitherto unseen algorithms and mechanics, investors often find it difficult to fund such nascent companies, as they do not have the expertise and knowledge to analyze the potential value of such a technology — especially when there is lack of similar precedent products or competitors to compare to.
TEC Edmonton and FormulateIP in collaboration with ChapterAI are organizing a panel discussion on opportunities in raising investment for deep technology growth companies. We'll start with a panel discussion during which the experts will talk about the fundraising process (Pre Series A/Series A and further rounds) and what it takes to successfully raise funding, followed by Q&A. Some topics that'll be covered during the panel are debunking some common myths associated with fundraising, prerequisites a company should meet before raising investments and the best practices to work with VC communities. This event will be particularly useful for established startups which have raised seed round and looking to raise next round of funding.
The panel discussion will be followed by a light dinner and entrepreneurs will get an opportunity to network with panel members, other investors and mentors who will be joining the event.
