  • Advisors get to learn about early-stage companies and early-stage investing.

Advising activities include:

  • Assisting in the down-selection process that identifies the companies that will present at the quarterly pitch events.
  • Attending and participating in the quarterly pitch events
  • Assisting in due-diligence for companies late in the funding evaluation process
  • Optionally coaching companies in your area of expertise


  • There is no cost to become an Advisor.
