Growing with VC and Without

Should you raise money from VCs or should you bootstrap your company? Is your company the type of company that VCs want to see? What makes a VC say "yes!" or pass? Should you skip the VC roadshow altogether and focus on organic growth? The most common reason VCs pass on investment may surprise you.

Join the Pittsburgh Venture Capital Association, Piper Creative, and 1517 Fund for an evening pulling back the curtain on growth. We'll have refreshments and light food followed by a bootstrapped founder and tech venture capitalist discussing the challenges and benefits to growing with or without venture capital.
