In the build up to beGLOBAL we have introduced some top names in the business with an emphasis on VCs and entrepreneurs. Now it’s time to introduce the people who will be speaking on behalf of the third important group, namely the accelerators. We’re joined by some of the crème de la crème of the top Silicon Valley accelerators, namely Y Combinator, Boost VC, 500 Startups and BootstrapsLabs. As we did with the Seed Funds Going Global Panel, we’re going to divide this introduction in two parts. Yesterday we presented Kevin Hale from Y Combinator and Adam Draper from Boost VC and today it’s time to introduce Christine Tsai and Ben Levy.
As the Head of the Execution Platform for BootstrapLabs portfolio companies, Ben Levy focuses on equity value creation through Execution, Execution and Execution. Key activities include nailing scalable product market fit, accelerating stakeholders feedback loop, pulling-in world class industry experts as advisors, employees or service providers, positioning product and story for market adoption and investor seduction, negotiating and closing funding round and cementing strategic business development deals to reinforce exit paths.
