  • How can entrepreneurs who seek Seed to Series A-stage funding in the San Diego-Tijuana region better position themselves for success? It’s difficult for founders - at a typical networking event - to get quality time while waiting on line to speak with an investor who may not have a mutual interest or relevant background. Moreover, investors are asked the same questions over and over again.
  • During this panel, for the first 40 min. you will learn about the current process for consideration at TCA and also about relevant programs that are being developed to improve deal flow and the community experience. For the final 20 min. we will open up the floor to the audience for pressing Q&A.
  • The panel members all hail from a variety of industries and many are serial entrepreneurs, representing diversity within TCA.
