Sure, you always include an "Exit Strategy" slide in your pitch deck, but do you REALLY know how exits and fundraises happen?
Let's get down and dirty: Learn what it's really like to raise a round or exit, including hardware specific discussions of topics such as:
1. True nitty-gritty of the exit process
2. Due diligence and Data room documents
3. How to balance trying to exit while running your business
4. Understanding the tradeoffs and timing between raising money from VC’s, Angels, and Strategic Partner Funding

These entrepreneurs, who know what it's REALLY like to be in the trenches of fundraising and acquisition processes, will explain their thought processes in these situations.
