What's the state of the venture capital and funding landscape? After the 2016 slowdown, 2017 looks bullish for early-stage investing and IPOs. Venture capital looks to be returning to its fundamental roots – targeting promising young companies early in their formation and betting on their potential to soar. How are venture models changing? What is being funded? Now that there isn't a glut of seed-stage startups looking for Series A, what's the role of the post seed investor? What are the hot sectors in 2017? FinTech? HealthTech? CleanTech? Transportation as a service?
The show will be hosted by Shawn Gold, CMO of TechStyle Fashion Group. Each Splash Talk and Splash Roundtable will be followed by a 10-minute audience Q&A.
