November Startup Financing 101: Scott Button

November 5 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join StartingBlock and Scott Button from Venture Investors for this month’s Startup Financing 101.

Are you an entrepreneur thinking about raising investment $? Not sure which VC fund makes sense for you? Have questions about investment stages, option pools, valuations? Intimidated?

This is your chance to hear from Madison’s best vc fund managers and associates about what they are looking for, their investment theses, how to find the investors that are right for you.


Startup Financing 101 is on the second Tuesday of each month and designed to provide early stage startups and entrepreneurs an opportunity to ask questions of fund managers and associates.

Target audience is entrepreneurs and startup founders generally, not limited to companies actively fundraising.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about fundraising dos (and don’ts), why (and why not), and how to avoid common mistakes first-time (and experienced) entrepreneurs can make.


5:00-5:45 PM Startup Financing 101: Presentation & Q&A: presentation on the basic components of venture capital and financing startups.

6:00-7:00 PM NETWORKING / Q&A HAPPY HOUR: Snacks and drinks following the presentation in the cafe space, thanks to Sandalphon Capital.
