Funding The Future: Startup & VC Life Post Graduation

February 26, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join the Nelson Center and the Slater Technology Fund for a discussion with Stuart Ellman, General Partner, Maria Palma, Vice President, and Ana Rosenstein ’15 from RRE Ventures, a venture capital firm focused on helping founders build category-defining companies in industries ranging from financial services (OnDeck, Avant, Venmo) to 3D printing (Makerbot), and from media (BuzzFeed, Business Insider, TheSkimm) to space and robotics (Clearpath Robotics, Spaceflight, Spire).

The team will provide guidance and insight on what it is like joining a startup after graduation. They will share what you should consider when joining one, such as which stage to join at, to typical roles, compensation, and things to watch out for. They will also discuss various paths to VC and fundraising for those starting companies post-graduation.

Founded in 1994, RRE is headquartered in New York City and has raised seven funds with total capital commitments in excess of $2 billion. For more information visit their website.

RSVP here. All of our events are open to the public.
