Harvard Start-Up Week: How to Start a Startup: The Pandemic Edition

Thursday, February 25, 2021 at 4:00pm to 4:45pm

Virtual Event

You’ve taken a year off school — or you have a lot more time “at work” than you thought. It’s finally time to start that company you’ve always dreamed of, or to make your weekend project a full-time passion. Should you take the leap? Will you need to raise money? What are you signing up for if you say yes?

Come meet Patrick Chung and Brandon Farwell of Xfund, the Harvard-affiliated early-stage venture fund that identifies and supports founders just like you. Xfund just announced its $120 million third fund. Xfund and its partners were the first investors in companies like 23andMe, Kensho, Plaid, Segment, Guideline, Robinhood, Gusto, Patreon, Andela, and others. Come with all questions you have about starting a company and raising money in a pandemic! Hosted by Xfund.

Registration required via Handshake to participate (first come, first serve), by Friday, February 19 at 12 PM. A link to the event will be sent to approved participants in advance of the event.
