About this event

Are you an entrepreneur looking to potentially raise funds from a Venture Capital in future? Or are you just curious about what a venture capitalist looks out for when they choose to invest in top-performing and high growth companies?

Join us for a fireside chat with Michele Ferrario, CEO and Co-Founder of StashAway and Abheek Anand, Managing Director at Sequoia Capital for a discussion on what VCs look for in companies and why they chose to invest in StashAway
