Overview

Dr. Wang will share her own career success story, how she chose this profession, how she evolved to her successful role today. She will give us a view of venture capital in security today, and what venture capital funds look at when considering funding from emerging technologies and trends, and how security fits into that pipeline. Chenxi will give perspective on how we might aspire to this career path—or as an investor, within the Venture Capital field. This will include skillsets, experience, the persona that works best, how negotiations and power of influence come into play, the benefits of such a field, and where and why we may want to engage.
