Getting to an Exit

featuring Silicon Valley Veteran Cheryl Contee & Investor Friends

A Special Event for Founders

Join us!
Oakland, CA

Cheryl Contee, The Impact Seat Foundation

You’re invited to join us for a fireside chat featuring Cheryl Contee, CEO of The Impact Seat Foundation and Silicon Valley veteran, as she shares insights as an exited founder, author, and entrepreneurial leader. This is a no-cost event geared toward entrepreneurs on the grow-scale-exit trajectory.

 

In 2012, Contee co-founded Attentive.ly, a tech startup specializing in influencer technology, serving as their Strategic Advisor. In 2016, Attentive.ly was acquired by Blackbaud, making it the first tech startup with a black female founder on board in history to be acquired by a NASDAQ-traded company. Additionally, she is the award-winning Founder and Chair of Do Big Things, a digital agency focused on creating innovative narratives and technologies for causes and campaigns.  Her book Mechanical Bull: How You Can Achieve Startup Success covers topics such as building your team, raising funds, and overcoming challenges; and shares stories and insights from other founders and investors with diverse backgrounds and perspectives. 

 

Part two of the event will include an investor panel discussion, where seasoned investors share insights into navigating the current capital raising environment.
