Silicon Valley Mindset&Funding Summit@SF Campus of UC Berkeley Extension | | Saturday, 17. November 2018
Entrepreneurs come from all over the world to raise funding at Pitch Globally’s weekly investor events in Silicon Valley and regular events in LA and London. We see very talented entrepreneurs who should get funding often fail to do so. They fail to change their mindset and become a victim of perception. That is why, Pitch Globally’s Founder, KC Wisdom, started monthly bootcamps on Silicon Valley Funding and Mindset almost a year ago (check out a recent video where we had 20 Founders & senior executives from Poland ). Due to popular demand, Pitch Globally is starting this Summit on Silicon Valley Mindset and Funding where we will collectively learn how to acquire a Silicon Valley Mindset and sustain it over time.
We are still giving final touches to the Agenda and content, so watch this space.
