Opening General Session — Investment Perspectives: Does Location Matter?

03 January 2012 Past Event

East Coast, West Coast, and in-between. Entrepreneurs and VCs alike believe that the economics and terms of venture investments — and the ongoing contributions of VCs in their portfolio companies — differ significantly between the coasts. What are these differences? Do they matter to the entrepreneurs and co-investors? Do they impact the exit value of the business and, if so, how? Our panel will discuss these issues and offer some interesting insights.
