TC Early Stage is our only event where you get hands-on training with experts to help your business succeed. No need to reinvent the startup wheel – you get access to leading experts in a range of specialties.

During this one-day startup boot camp, you will learn about legal issues, fundraising, marketing, growth, product-market fit, pitching, recruiting and more. We’re talking about more than 40 engaging presentations, workshops and round tables with interactive Q&As and plenty of time for networking.

Here are just a few examples of the topics we have on tap. You will find many more in the events calendar.

How to tell your TAM: Construct Capital’s Dayna Grayson invests in rebuilding our economy’s most fundamental and broken industries. Industries such as manufacturing and logistics, among others, which originated in an analog world, have been neglected by advanced technology. Dayna will talk about how founders can pitch investors to their TAM beyond the idea, including how they will squeeze into the market and ultimately disrupt it.

How to think about accelerators and incubators: Founders often hear that they should get involved in an incubator or accelerator, but when is the “right” time for startup founders to sign up for these types of startup support ecosystems, and how best to participate if accepted ? In this talk, Matt Segneri, Executive Director of Harvard Innovation Labs, will discuss everything from the types of incubators and accelerators available to early-stage founders, to what startups should consider before signing on, and tips for getting the most out of these ecosystems .

How to raise outside SV in a down market: Silicon Valley’s finance market is generally more immune to macroeconomic conditions than anywhere else in the world. So how do you level up outside the Valley bubble? General Catalyst’s Mark Crane has extensive experience on both the founder and VC side from across Europe, as well as an understanding of the Northeast US funding landscape, so he will provide practical advice on how to stay alive and thrive.

At Early Stage, you’ll walk away with a deeper working understanding of topics and skills critical to startup success. Founders save $200 with an early-bird founder ticket — students pay only $99!
