MEETING EXCHANGE C: FACE TO FACE WITH INVESTORS

Meeting Exchanges are CIX’s popular one-on-one, pre-booked meetings between founders and leading growth-stage investors from North America and globally, who are the hosts. These meetings are a valuable opportunity for advice, building a relationship as well as potential funding partnership. Founders may pre-book up to three investor meetings through CIXchange from October 3rd to 27. Each meeting is 8 minutes, plus a 2 minute transition time. Investors’ investment preferences are noted in their profile. Please note, space is limited and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Founders may also join the wait line on-site to meet with available investors. It is important that founders show up 5 minutes before the scheduled meeting, or the spot will be given away.

Entrepreneurs please read the investment preferences of the hosts to ensure there is a fit.
