Taking your Startup from Idea to Scale: Traversing the Traction Gap with Wildcat Venture Partners
Join us in welcoming Wildcat Venture Partners on October 8, 2019 for a Lunch & Learn infosession. Wildcat Venture Partners is a Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm that invests in early stage technology companies. Wildcat invests in B2B and B2B2C startups leveraging key technologies such as Machine Learning/AI, IoT, and Cloud & Mobility in the following markets: Digital Health, EdTech, Enterprise SaaS and FinTech.
Industry statistics show that more than 80% of all startups fail. The reason? While most startup teams have strong product engineering skills, many lack the “market engineering” skills required to successfully take their products to market and subsequently scale.
This event will feature a presentation by Bruce Cleveland, founding partner of Wildcat Venture Partners and author of the book Traversing the Traction Gap (2019). The book lays out a detailed step-by-step process that startup teams can use to go from ideation to preparing for scale— a modern-day early stage playbook that addresses the causes of high startup failure rates and provides strategies and tactics that can minimize them.
