On May 28th, the Kilpatrick Townsend San Francisco office held a lively and very interactive panel discussion with investors and tech startups in its collaborative hub. Siegmar Pohl first discussed how startups should prepare for investment in the Silicon Valley from a legal perspective, and then co-moderated a panel about what investors look for in startups in various financing rounds. Panelists included investor Soren Sudhof (Maverick Capital), Fintech & Insurtech Lead Mike Sigal (500 Startups), Founder Stefan Behrens (Gyant.com), Freddy Sulk (Automation Hero), and Christian Umbach (Xapix.io). The German American Chamber of Commerce San Francisco and Bird & Bird co-hosted the event, which attracted approximately 30 startups and German delegates, including the former Vice Chancellor of Germany and Federal Minister of Economics Philipp Rösler and the Chairman of the German Startup Association Florian Noell.
The presentation and discussion was very well received by the audience, who also visited Uber and the German Accelerator that same day.
