Athena Entrepreneurs Weekly Meetups with James Gettinger on How to Know if You’re Ready for VC Funding
Drop by the next Athena Entrepreneurs meetup on Thursday, October 28 to connect with other students interested in entrepreneurship and learn if or when you’re ready to pursue VC funding. Before diving into work on our own ideas, Athena’s Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Deepti Sharma, will lead a conversation with James Gettinger, early-stage venture investor at Gutter Capital. Join us if you’re curious to learn more about the dos and don’ts of pitching, what venture funders are seeking from founders, and what alternative sources exist for funding.
Open to aspiring and emerging women and nonbinary entrepreneurs from Barnard and Columbia (current students). No RSVP is required!
Athena Entrepreneurs is a community of aspiring and emerging women and nonbinary entrepreneurs from Barnard and Columbia who gather regularly to further develop their ideas. We believe entrepreneurship is a powerful way to make change in the world. Here, you’ll find space to meet collaborators, work together and get support, and make the kind of impact you want to make.
- Work on your ventures — or just learn more about entrepreneurship. Athena’s Director of Applied Learning & Entrepreneurship and Athena’s Entrepreneur-In-Residence are here to help.
- Connect with our guests — experienced entrepreneurs, investors, and more — who drop by to share tips and insights from their own entrepreneurial journey and stick around afterward for one-on-one conversations with students. Visit our website to see who our fall 2021 guests are.
No registration is required, so drop by for one or all — it’s up to you!
