AbstractThe great frustration of the would-be entrepreneur is the gap between idea and execution, inspiration and the practical reality of what it takes to start and scale a business. Led by Mike Torto, the CEO of Raleigh-based rPath, this session will address the fundamentals of what it takes to validate a vision, negotiate venture funding, attract a world-class team, build a differentiated product, and partner with early customers. A four-time CEO with experience leading ventures through early revenue, growth and exit stages, Torto will relate his own experiences—and lessons learned—to what it takes to start and scale a high tech venture.

The event is free and open to the public.  Ample free parking is also available.
