Many startups fail, not because they didn't have the right product or service, but because either they raised fund at the wrong time from the wrong investor in wrong terms, OR they didn't have an exit strategy, OR even worse they didn't have a proper legal structure to make the company fundable or saleable.
The Camp will touch base on these aspects from people who have made it happen, and then followed by strong panel to see both sides of the coin.
