Growing Entrepreneurs: The Role of Human Capital

Investor support for entrepreneurs comes in many forms and the range of support methods is growing. This provides startup and growth stage companies access to more resources than ever before i.e. accelerators, advisors, boards of directors and compensated experts across multiple industries and verticals.

As the Co-Founder of New England's leading EdTech accelerator LearnLaunch in Boston as well as an active angel investor, board member, advisor and mentor -- Jean Hammond will share her view into the world of how these investor "guiding" relationships may be appropriate for entrepreneurs as they launch & grow their venture in order to survive the startup and scaling phases.
