Have you ever considered having your company talk to a corporate venture capital firm? Have you ever wondered what a VC firm is looking for in a company? If so, this is the episode for you!

We’re joined this week by the incredible Christie Pitts of Verizon Ventures. We discuss all things VC-related, from working alongside a corporate VC, how to pitch an investor, what to do (and not to do) when pitching to an investor, how to stand out from everyone else, and what to expect from working alongside a VC for the long-haul. As well, we discuss with Christie her personal backstory to joining the Verizon Ventures team, her love and passion for all things Oakland, a little bit of Game of Thrones, the need for more diversity in entrepreneurship/tech, and of course, hockey.

Episode 13 of #thePawdcast brings a lot of knowledge, fun and impact to the table. Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
