2022 Welcome to MIT Sloan CFO Summit
Deal or No Deal: Financing Innovation

When venture capitalists evaluate new opportunities, they look not only at the innovation itself, but also the management team, competitive landscape and financial markets.  Similarly, innovative companies seeking investment have to consider not only the partner to whom the pitch is being made, but also the firm, its investment committee and governance structure.  

Matthew Rhodes-Kropf, managing partner at Tectonic Ventures and Visiting Associate Professor at MIT Sloan delves into the model of investment in new ventures including how investment committees interact with the creation of new firms.
