Guest Blog: Myavana Goes West, My Investor Pitch Experience With DreamIt


By Candace Mitchell

California

It was the start of the new year and I was just getting settled in from relocating back to Philadelphia from Atlanta after an awesome experience in the DreamIt Ventures Fall 2014 class. Never would I have thought that a week later I’d be heading out to Silicon Valley to pitch investors about my company, Myavana. But that’s just how Patrick Fitzgerald rolls. Patrick was our Managing Director and when he has something in mind, he gets up and gets it done. So while it was typical, I was still blown away to see a list of over 20 venture firms invited to our demo day-style presentation. I knew this was an opportunity I had to hop on quickly.

Alley Boost: VC, lawyer, startup CEO, and designer square table discussion


Andrew Ackerman, managing director of DreamIt NY, joins three other movers-and-shakers from the NYC startup scene for  Alley Boost: VC, lawyer, startup CEO, and designer square table discussion at Mercey College for a this interesting conversation about how all the elements work together.

Alley Boost: Square Table – The way the square table works is instead of a panel up front speaking TO the audience – the 4 (2 squared) speakers sit at the four corners of a large table WITH the audience. Limited to 36 (6 squared!) audience members. The discussion then becomes more inclusive. The discussion is often more hands on and focused.
