The event will cater to agency owners and providers, the financial industry, startup founders, Angel investors and VC, startup enthusiasts, media, and the list continues. The panelists will explore a methodology developed in collaboration with Stanford University to make sound investment decisions. The event will cover all the major bases, including but not limited to marketing, HR, legal and M&A expertise.
