Session 6 Topic: The Funding Landscape

What are the differences among angel investors, seed funds, venture capitalists, and other investors? Not to mention, what different types of capital can these individuals and organizations provide? This discussion will provide a background on the sources of funding for startup companies, the differences among these sources, and which sources can be the better fit for particular stages in the startup lifecycle—from prototype to exit.
