Rookie Fund Presents: Angel and Seed Funding for Student Startups; Trend of Venture Capital Investment
Facebook, Dropbox, Snap, to name but a few, are successful technology companies founded by university students. They were backed by venture capital firms before becoming popular. Venture capital (VC) is essentially the go-to for early stage startups who are seeking capital to sustain their businesses, recruit more talent, and gain massive support for expansion. This session aims to demystify VC seed funding to students, particularly for those looking to enter the venture, tech and startup scene.
Together with Jowell of Catalyst Ventures, Rookie Fund Student Investment Associates (aka Rookies) will share the technology investment trends in Hong Kong and the globe, besides introducing the concept of early stage startup financing and the basics of venture capital. They will disclose the technicalities of the fundraising deal process, along with tips to working with angel investors and venture capitalists. Students will get to know about how to enter VC as a career.
