In the Know From the Go: How to Effectively Communicate with Your Key Stakeholders | 12:00 - 1:30 PM

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

After strategically courting and locking your investor team and building your board of directors, founders soon recognize the challenging balance between business execution and keeping these key stakeholders informed, current, engaged, and passionate about their investment. 

How do you keep your stakeholders interested in the next round or in engaging further? Are you sharing the right level of information? How should you convey bad news? Are you optimistic, pessimistic, or realistic? What milestones are conveyed? How do you maintain consistency in your communications cadence, style, and content? What's the right content and frequency? And what's the effort required to do this right?

Our panel will include the perspectives of early stage CEOs and investors to help you understand the importance, the content, insights, and pitfalls for maintaining a strong relationship with your key stakeholders. 

Lunch will be provided. Since there is limited space for this event, it is advised that you arrive early as entry will be on a first come, first serve basis. 

Austin Startup Week is supported in part by HiredNetSpendIBM BluemixCapital Factory and Techstars. If you see someone from their teams, give them a hug and hi-five!
