On October 28, 2014 by Schnader

Innovation Practice Group chair Justine Kasznica served as a moderator for “Drive Forward: A Panel Discussion” on Tuesday, October 28, 2014, in Pittsburgh. Discussion centered around NoWait, a Pittsburgh-based startup that has developed a mobile network for consumers and restaurants, and recently received a $10 million investment from Drive Capital, a venture capital firm based in Columbus, Ohio. The panel used NoWait as an example in examining what investors are looking for in a company at different stages of development and funding, from accelerator/seed to Series A and Series B. Panelists included Chris Olsen, founding parter at Drive Capital; Ware Sykes, CEO of NoWait; Sean Ammirati of Birchmere Ventures; and Jim Jen of AlphaLab/Innovation Works.
