Ask the Entrepreneurs Series

TiE Seattle is excited to launch a new series as part of Startup on Tap. In this series we will have a moderated Q&A session with panelists on topics related to entrepreneurs. Topics will include -  growing your startup, funding your startup and successful exit strategies. We will collect questions from attendees during the initial networking time so that we can structure the discussion and aim the questions to the panelists with the most relevant experience.

We are excited to launch this series with the following 3 panelists from our Charter Member Group for our August session : Gillian Muessig, James Newell and Rahul Sahgal.
