All too often, tech entrepreneurs get out-dated advice on “how to pitch”, “what investors need” etc. Turing’s Start-up Pitch Clinic will provide hands on lessons from someone who actually knows what they are talking about.

Brian Caulfield is going to lead this session. He is former tech entrepreneur who now sits on the other side of the table as an investor. As an entrepreneur, Brian built three tech companies: one failed, the other two were both acquired for a combined value of over $100M. He then became an active angel investor, before moving on to VC. He is now a Partner at leading pan-European VC DFJEsprit. He has been there & done it, and is going to be helping Scottish startups get their investment pitch sharp. 

Please note this event has limited places available.
