We are pleased to welcome Allison Clift-Jennings, Adam Kiefer, and Aaron Sturm to discuss their experiences participating in startup accelerator programs.
It’s not easy to get a startup off the ground and highly competitive startup accelerator programs like Techstars and Y-Combinator (whose graduates include Airbnb and Dropbox) have become a way for startups to grow a network, get advice, and receive investment to catalyze their growth.
Join us for a moderated panel discussion with three local founders, Allison Clift-Jennings, CEO of Filament, Adam Kiefer, CEO and Co-founder of Talage, and Aaron Sturm, Head of Business Development for StreamLoan, each of whom has been through two accelerator programs.
Targeting their discussion to both those generally interested in startups and startup founders ready to explore applying to an accelerator, they’ll discuss the pros and cons of startup accelerators, how you get into these highly competitive programs, and what startups can expect to get out of them during these 3-month intensives.
Mountain Minds Monday will be held on Monday, June 11th from 6-8 pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner located at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. Pizza and salad are available and we use a pay-what-you-can model ($5 minimum). Before and after the panel discussion, there will be time for networking.
The event will also be livestreamed and available online as it happens on YouTube: bit.ly/YouTubeTSM
This month’s event is sponsored by New Leaders, Holland & Hart LLP, The Lift, Molsby & Bordner, LLP, and Mountain Workspace.
