At Post Seed 2015, hosted by Bullpen CapitalVator and Venture 51Alex Konrad, Staff Writer at Forbes moderated the panel "What Unicorns looked like at Series A/ Post-Seed".  He was joined by Tod Francis, Managing Director of Shasta Ventures; Jed Katz, Managing Director of Javelin Venture Partners; Christine Herron, Director at Intel; Tom Loverro, Vice President of IVP; Matt Mazeo, Managing Director of Lowercase Capital. 

A key takeaway from this panel: A consistent trait of Unicorns at the early stages is having a founder who is an articulate, inspiring, convincing and confident evangelist.
