Since 2014, our fireside chat series sponsored by Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati has been TechFire's most popular event series. And in 2017, in partnership with WSGR, we launched a new series of events, called the Road to Series A, designed to help founders prepare build and grow their startups, from scratch, to Series A funding. Each event focused around a different topic. In December, we focused on Building a Team. Before that, on September 13, we talked growth strategies, featuring Greylock Partners' Casey Winters, an advisor to Airbnb, Reddit, Tinder, Eventbrite and other leading companies, and the former Growth Lead for Pinterest. On July 26, we focused on seed funding, and on April 19 at Google LA we looked at product/market fit.
