We're so excited to have "a god of VC" in the house for this special Techhub Member-only event (use your member code on the registration page). Fred is visiting from the US, and we're extremely privileged to have some time in his busy schedule. This isn't strictly a finance-focused event, but we've included it here as gaining insight from a VC stalwart on startups is hugely advantageous when you're thinking about raising capital now or in the future.
