News & Updates

This week is the first of two new monthly series with The Yield Lab and with the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS). If you’re a founder in the healthtech space and are looking to join a team or learn how to commercialize your inventions, then ICTS’s series is for you. If you’re in the ag space or interested in how other founders scaled internationally, check out The Yield Lab series which invites founders from their global portfolio. Check the calendar below.

⭐️ By the way, we’ve added a way for you to rate and comment on sessions. If you have a Venture Cafe account, you can now review sessions, leave a comment, or ask a question.

You often hear that a good startup solves a personal problem of the founder, but it’s possible to focus too narrowly on your own needs. Don’t get too stuck on your problem, and make sure to spend more time focusing on solving your customers’ problems.
