Hi Digesters,
Lots of exciting events coming up over the next few weeks. Moonfire and Stride VC just announced their (new) funds, backing early stage companies.
“The Debut Sessions vision is to democratise fundraising for pre-Seed startups through #DSLive, a live interactive environment powered by the community. The future of Demo Days will be online, interactive, open-sourced and free for anyone to attend, driven by the community via #DSOpenSource and social media” <- Make sure not to miss DSLive3, taking place on May 13th, with some amazing panels lined up.
Check out the Cornestore Report on founder journeys and the barriers to inclusive investment. “Equity investment professionals must recognise the tacit use of networks for risk mitigation, and develop new processes to replace these exclusionary practices”
