Austin Startup Week is a free five-day event that celebrates the Austin startup community. Kerry Rupp will join the Fundraising Track, on the panel “Texas’ Growing Venture Market: What’s Changing & Ecosystem Impact”.
“Texas’ venture market is growing both in percentage of U.S. VC dollars invested and number of deals. At the same time, Seed rounds today are raising as much as Series A rounds did in 2010, and being able to generate revenue is now expected of companies trying to raise Series A rounds. So what are firms looking for amidst the changing landscape? This session will cover the recent trends firms are seeing in the Texas venture market, and how it’s impacting their approaches.”
