While Google raised $25M from Sequoia and KPCB back in ’99, and even now a fabless (is there any other kind?) semiconductor and many Life Science startups will probably need north of $50 to get to break even, a new breed of entrepreneur is leveraging Web 2.0 technology and the ever flattening world to create viable, global businesses for less than a million bucks! What does this mean for Venture Capital investment patterns and the returns they are looking for, and maybe more importantly, what can you do to build your high growth startup fast with little, or maybe no, venture capital?

Looking for the dollars & growth?

This lively panel discussion will explore current trends and panelist opinions on topics including:
• Can any fundable startup really get to breakeven on less than $1M venture capital?
• What does a “Capital Efficient” startup look like?
• Where do you find the people & resources for next to nothing?
• How can you generate revenue straight out of the gate?
• If I can generate revenue, and I have minimal expense, why do I need Venture Capital?
• If $1M “hardly moves the needle,” what returns are VCs now looking for?

The Panel:
• Peter Yared, Founder & CEO, wdgtbldr

Moderator: Ed Lambert, Senior Vice President, Bridge Bank
