Cash is King

A webinar with Kevin O’Leary and Howard Marks to discuss the state of fundraising for startups. What’s happening today will decide which startups will win and which will lose. Q&A to follow.

If you’re a startup founder, then these last few months you’ve been hearing phrases like:

  • “VC’s are consolidating their portfolios and investment dollars are drying up”
  • “Prepare for a recession…cut spending, lay off employees”
  • “Startups that survive the next 12-24 months will reap the benefits of zero competition” 

Join us with renowned investor Kevin O’Leary as we hear from founders and serial entrepreneur-investors in a discussion on what exactly is going on in the private capital markets, how to plan for this as a founder or CEO of a startup, and implications this all has for your company. 

Featured Speakers: 

  • Kevin O’Leary Venture Capitalist, Shark Tank, StartEngine  Strategic Advisor & Spokesperson
  • Howard Marks CEO & Co-Founder of StartEngine as well as Activision ($70B acquisition by Microsoft)
  • Jeff Annison President & Co-Founder of Legion M (over $15.5M raised via crowdfunding)
  • Allen Jebsen Sr. VP of Fundraising at StartEngine
