Roundtable Recap: February 20 – Think Through Your Working Capital Needs

Posted on Wednesday, Feb 20th 2019

During this week’s roundtable, we had as our guest Swapna Gupta, Senior Investment Manager, Qualcomm Ventures, who explained the firm’s investment strategy.

Zodhya
As for entrepreneur pitches, up first we had Rohith Pallerla from Hyderabad, India, pitching Zodhya, a hardware device that optimizes energy consumption in commercial air-conditioning systems. Zodhya already has paying customers. However, the company needs to address flaws in its working capital strategy that stems from the current pricing model.

Qlicket
Next, Vivek Kumar from San Francisco, California, pitched Qlicket, a blue collar workforce retention solution, also with paying customers.
