Founder Friendly Ways to Get Started | Panel


MN founders and special guest Rob Walling of TinySeed share their experiences with getting started and scaling without venture capital. For many founders, independence is more valuable than anything. It may seem that the venture capital path and blitzscaling are the only options, however only 0.6% of businesses raise any VC dollars at all. This conversation will feature the insights and experience of entrepreneurs and investors who are charting a different path. There will be ample time for questions and networking. Hosted at Finnovation Lab in Minneapolis.
