Choosing a startup to start or join from a first investor’s perspective by Jane Walerud

June 17, 2021


What does a very early stage investor consider when choosing which company to invest in? This talk will be useful for those of you who dream of starting a company.

Jane Walerud
I am a serial tech entrepreneur who enjoys operative roles. Since 1999, I have worked with 15 startups, including the successes Bluetail, Klarna and Lensway, and Tobii (where I was business unit head for assistive technology). Three others went badly. The overall results of our investments have been very good. During 2016, after a successful exit from Teclo Networks, I’m engaged with several new firms (two at a time so we can give them our full attention). I studied Cognitive Psychology and Computer Science at Stanford University.
