T-BIRD TALKS  -  Silicon Valley

Join us for a series of conversations that bring together business and technology leaders with globally minded Thunderbird alumni and friends in Silicon Valley.

These are designed to be a chance to network and discuss trending topics in an intimate setting over a dinner.

How to Pitch to VCs



Imagine a chance to ask VCs what they are looking for in an intimate, informal setting. For the first time in our Thunderbird Silicon Valley alumni chapter's history, We're offering a diverse panel of VCs to share their perspective on what or how to make a compelling pitch to them.

Who should attend: Startup founders, startup ecosystem supporters with a knack or special skills to help build small companies, and those in the investment community who'd like to collaborate or network with other venture capitalists (VCs).


Current VC panelists:

Andrew Ogawa | Quest Venture Partners

Alain Labat | Harvest Management Partners

Elizabeth Yin | Hustle Fund

Kira Noodleman | Bee Partners
