First Round Capital meets with MIT Entrepreneurs

First Round Capital, a seed-stage venture firm focused on building a vibrant community of technology entrepreneurs and companies, met with our five aspiring MIT entrepreneurs yesterday. A VP of First Round, Brett Berson, gave our pitchers incredible advice on go-to-market strategy and overall suggestions for pitching techniques.

As our pitchers spoke with Brett, he probed into the questions of “why us?”, “why now?”, and taught our team how to address and meet the core challenges of the business during the pitch.first round

First Round helps tiny companies get big while constantly re-imagining the role of Venture Capital.These non-thematic investors have successfully backed start-ups like Uber, Square and Warby Parker. Our team was lucky enough to meet with them this year, and we hope to continue the tradition for our annual MIT Sloan E&I Trek!
