How to Confidently Connect with Your Perfect Investors

May 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| TIGER Talk

Please register by 10 pm, Thu May 27.
At 11 pm, we’ll email you a link to access LIVESTREAM the next day.

Join Rev1 Ventures Managing Director Parker McDonell in this interactive TIGER Talk. If we have one piece of advice for entrepreneurs launching scalable tech businesses, it’s preparing to devote a significant portion of your time to fundraising.

You need to begin preparing for the process of fundraising long before your company is ready to seek or accept outside investment. Just as you need to learn as much as you can about your potential customers, you need to understand your ideal investor, as well.

In this session, you’ll learn how to build an excellent relationship with current and future investors over time.


At Rev1 Ventures, Parker MacDonell leads the Ohio TechAngel Funds, which invest in seed-stage Ohio companies. He formerly led the Rev1 Advisor Network, matching engaged client companies with business leaders for one-on-one advice and mentoring. Parker holds a BA in Music from Dartmouth College and a Masters of Public and Private Management from the Yale School of Management. Parker’s favorite quote is “Stay loose, and play tight!” These were the instructions from rock & roll legend Chuck Berry to his backup band (which included Parker), the first time they took the stage together.


Like all Virtual TIGER 🐯 Events, this one is FREE.

Please join via Zoom at 11:45 am to introduce yourself to your fellow innovators!
