About this series:

General Assembly and Tom Wisniewski (RosePaul Investments) have partnered to create Show Me the Money, a monthly event series that provides an insider perspective on the critical elements involved in successful startup fundraising and entrepreneurship. Learn the most important aspects of business investment from venture capitalists, angels, and successful entrepreneurs. The formula for the events is simple: one part focused, actionable presentation, two parts great speakers, one part participation/networking.
