Startup Catalyst is an initiative by Canaan Partners to create a support system for entrepreneurs. The website was launched in March and has an aggregation of startup resources for entrepreneurs. StartupCatalyst has now launched Hangouts which will help entrepreneurs get feedback on their product.
The first hangout is being scheduled for August 30th for which entrepreneurs can sign up here. The hangout will be a casual conversation between the VC and entrepreneur where the two parties can talk face to face and the entrepreneur can get valuable inputs on his or her startup.
Questions like: "Is my business plan investor worthy?" "Am I ready to raise funds?" "What should be my go-to market?" and such can be discussed. Canaan Partner intends to do these hangout regularly along with other initiatives via StartuCatalyst.
