VC Investor Ask Me Anything with Forward Partners
Join Forward's investors Katie Kim and Luke Smith for the 4th edition of VC Investor Ask Me Anything session.

When: Thursday, 27th May 2021 at 4pm - 5pm.


Founders, this is your chance to ask Forward investors Katie and Luke all the questions you’ve ever wanted to ask about VC fundraising but you’ve never been able to.

As a founder, raising from VCs can seem like a mysterious process. We sometimes hear of entrepreneurs who go through their fundraise using “second-hand information”. If you haven’t got founder friends or VC contacts to show you the way, who do you ask?

To help make your first fundraise less of a black box, we’re hosting a VC Investor Ask Me Anything session on Thursday, 27th May.

What you can expect:

1 hour VC Investor AMA with our investors. You can ask anything - this is a safe space event so there’s no such thing as a silly question. Get all the answers you’ve struggled to find elsewhere.

How do I submit questions?

After you register, you will receive a confirmation email from Zoom with a link to Typeform to pre-submit your questions. You can also ask live follow-up questions using the Chat functions during the event.

Can I stay anonymous?

If you'd like to stay anonymous during the AMA, choose a different profile name when you register. You can then ask anonymous follow-up questions in the Live Chat.

Can I ask about my startup idea?

This is an AMA event to ask more info on the VC fundraising process. If you'd like to pitch your startup to us, please make an application for our Office Hours.
