Scale School: Perspectives on Investing in Scale

April 28, 2021

Wednesday, April 28 | 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM PDT

Most enterprises need significant investment to scale. What strategic considerations should ventures give to this stage of financing? How can enterprises best demonstrate their readiness and potential for growth to not only attract the desired amount of funding but also the right kind of investor relationships? In this session, Professor David Hsu and panelists will discuss the criteria and thinking behind decisions to invest in scale as well as how their perspectives may or may not evolve in the near or distant future.

Lead: Professor David Hsu, Richard A. Sapp Professor of Management
