Pepper Hamilton was the Coaching Sponsor of the 2017 New England Venture Summit at the end of last year. Pepper had a nice team at the conference over the two days and we are joined by most of them for this podcast. Pepper attorneys Shirley Kuhlmann, Steve London, Nick Stawasz, and Dan Sieck joined me to discuss a recap of the themes, insights and concerns they heard from the VCs and companies looking for funding during the conference.

Topics covered include blockchain, tips for pitching to VCs, industries and sectors being invested in, and competition for VC dollars available.
