Two of our colleagues visited 50 Partners in Paris to talk to two of their startups who were on the tipping point of obtaining a round of funding and expanding their organization.
We didn't set a goal or agenda for those meetings and asked them to share the challenges they were facing so they would get the most value within the limited time we had. We received questions about team management, product management , structuring the organization, how to go about external investments vs trying to get a loan from the bank, etc.
