Getting to Wow! A Glimpse into the Mind of VCs

What do you think investors are looking for from entrepreneurs? Your market size? Not exactly. Your product prototype? Not always. Your fancy pitch? Not necessarily. Do you really know how to impress them?

We are excited to have Bill Reichert, Partner at Pegasus Tech Ventures and one of Silicon Valley's foremost venture capitalists, join as the honored speaker for the fireside chat on the M7 Demo Day.

With our Founder & CEO Ella Li serving as the moderator, Bill will be sharing “The Top Ten Secrets of Venture Capital That Every Entrepreneur Needs to Know,” including insights on what VCs are inspired by and white lies a founder should never tell, unfolding the tips for successful fundraising.

Join us on December 9th and have your questions prepared for Bill! Besides the fireside chat, our Demo Day will feature a keynote speech, two panels, and 11 amazing startup pitches from our 2022 cohort. We are gathering a lineup of top-tier VCs and the most promising healthcare startups from Silicon Valley and across the globe! More details will be announced soon.
