Our panel of seasoned CEOs has seen it all. They have survived turbulent times, led their companies through periods of rapid growth, and navigated successfully through the great recession. All the while, they have built strong management teams, created new products and services, and found funding for their ventures — from angels, venture and private equity funds, and the public market. These leaders will provide insight into their managerial styles, suggest lessons to be learned from their experiences in financing both emerging and established companies, and share their views on the realities of today’s environment.
