Let’s face it, entrepreneurs and investors speak different languages. Most of the time, the entrepreneur pitches the investor and the investor asks questions, and both walk away confused. What were the deal terms? What are the next steps? Most end up asking themselves: What went wrong?

From consumer web, B2B, gaming; mobile; to devices and technology-enabled business services, there are core dimensions of any investment opportunity that investors and acquirers seek. To dramatically improve the odds of getting funded at any stage, you are well-served to understand, communicate and demonstrate how these fundamentals relate to your specific investment opportunity.

We are bringing the Gen-Y web community and the Gen-X technology/business communities together to hear from a panel of Angel and VC investors, B2B and consumer web entrepreneurs, and a technology investment banker, as they speak to the essential language of the technology deal.
