CHI: Thought Leader Dinner & Discussion - Troy Henikoff @ Homestead on the Roof

Members joined us for a special IVY Thought Leader Dinner & Discussion on How to Raise Money From Venture Capitalists, featuring the Managing Director of MATH Venture Partners, Troy Henikoff. A leader of the investment firm’s early to growth-stage fund, Troy has played a central role in building and scaling entrepreneurial teams with a focus on customer acquisition. Prior to MATH, Troy was a co-founder of Excelerate Labs, which became Techstars Chicago in 2013 — one of the fastest growing startup networks in the United States.

In this illuminating discussion, Troy revealed specific strategies when looking to raise venture capital — from what makes a great pitch stand out to the intricacies of his own decision-making process when it comes to investing in start-ups. This was an invaluable opportunity for any entrepreneurs looking to learn more about the process of getting their startups funded.

This special evening took place on the beautiful rooftop of Homestead on the Roof, where we enjoyed a delicious three-course meal of farm-fresh seasonal fare, unlimited wine, and unforgettable conversation with a fascinating group of IVY members.
