Last night, we had great panel discussion and Q&As on #VentureCapital! Many thanks to Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati (WSGR) for sponsoring this event. We also could not do this without our #VCs: Dan Beldy of Airwing Ventures, Jason Schoettler of Calibrate Ventures, Steve Allen of Digitalis, Mike Giardello of Mount Wilson Ventures, Jay Goss of Wavemaker Three-Sixty Health, and Ken Funahashi, representative from WSGR.
