What are the most important factors when you’re pitching your startup for fundraising? What questions come to the minds of the VCs you’re pitching? How do you get the deal across the finish line? Or choose the right investors for your company to begin with?

Extra Crunch Live looks to answer all these questions and more. Thus far, Coda’s Shishir Mehrotra and investor S. Somasegar have told us what sings in Coda’s pitch doc (not deck). We’ve heard how important it is to be customer-obsessed from Toast’s Aman Narang and BVP’s Kent Bennett. And Fifth Wall’s Brendan Wallace laid out all the biggest opportunities in prop tech. And that was just in the last month or so.

In July, we have more top-notch speakers on the roster, including big-name founders and seasoned investors. What’s more, these speakers are ready to hear about your startup. ECL features the Extra Crunch Live Pitch-off, where founders in the audience can pitch their products to speakers and get live feedback.

So without any further ado, here is a look at the amazing speakers we have joining us in July.
