A CEO’s View of Raising Capital from Seed to C

Every year at the CEO Masterminds Summit, we gather founders, and entrepreneurs to gain a much greater understanding on topics related to capital, revenue and talent from seasoned tech executives.

This year, Eric Stang, Chairman & CEO of OOMA shared an insightful and personal perspective of today’s fundraising and capital landscape, from Seed to C.

We were truly grateful to every speaker for their time and insights at this year’s event. But don’t take our word for it — you can watch these tremendous conversations for yourself.

Lastly, a special thanks to our CEO Master Minds Summit partner, Silicon Valley Bank and sponsors DeWinter Group, TriNet and SheppardMullin.
