On Thursday, October 25th at 6pm, come to Startup UCLA (Covel Commons 203) for a Fireside Chat and Q&A with Unshackled VC, a Silicon Valley based pre-seed fund focused on immigrant founders and international students. We’ll cover a range of topics, including what VCs look for in startups, the fundraising process, and how those who have immigrated to the US can navigate the landscape. Food will be provided.
