There’s a lot of great products and ideas no one has ever heard about. In many cases it’s because the Founder or CEO cannot articulate the product and the market opportunity effectively. The only way to do that is to be prepared for the types of questions an investor will ask. TCVN strives to help these Start Ups become fundable companies.
Being a sponsor is one of the many ways you can get involved in the TCVN community.
