Panel Discussion: How to raise funds for Deep Technology Startups

August 7 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Investing in deep tech startups requires a different playbook due to its nascent systems and complexity. Many deep tech products are still in their conceptual and prototypical phase, and are still years away from viable commercialization. And because they comprise layers of hitherto unseen algorithms and mechanics, investors often find it difficult to fund such nascent companies, as they do not have the expertise and knowledge to analyze the potential value of such a technology — especially when there is lack of similar precedent products or competitors to compare to.

Platform Calgary and FormulateIP in collaboration with Valhalla Angels and Lawcubator is organizing a panel discussion on opportunities in raising investment for deep technology startups. We are delighted to announce that Terry Rock (President & CEO at Platform Calgary), Luke Krueger (Co-Founder at Valhalla Private Capital and President of the Valhalla Global Accelerator), Cory Janssen (Co-Founder & CEO at AltaML) and Neeraj Gupta (investor & Co-Founder at ChapterAI, FormulateIP, Lawcubator) will be joining on us a panel to discuss the multiplex of deep tech investments.

We’ll start with a panel discussion during which the experts will talk about the fundraising process and what it takes to successfully raise funding, followed by Q&A. Some topics that’ll be covered during the panel are debunking some common myths associated with fundraising, prerequisites a startup should meet before looking for raising investments and best practices to work with angel and VC communities. The panel discussion will be followed by dinner and entrepreneurs will get opportunity to network with panel members and other investors and mentors who will be joining the event.

Agenda:

Panel Discussion 5:15 PM – 6: 15 PM

Networking Dinner: 6:15 PM – 7:00 PM

Date & Time: 7th August, 5 PM – 7 PM

Venue: Platform Calgary, Hillier Block
