In light of the rapidly changing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, Troutman Sanders and Pepper Hamilton have postponed the effective date of their previously announced merger until July 1, 2020. The new firm – Troutman Pepper – will feature 1,100+ attorneys across 23 U.S. offices. Read more.
Pepper has been a longtime sponsor of the New England Venture Summit and, for the last two years, has taken over the Coaching Sponsor role of the New York Venture Summit.

Scott joined us to discuss insights he learned from his VC panelists; trends he heard during conversations with guests at our private VC dinner the night before the Summit; and the biggest concerns he heard from startup leaders at the conference looking for financing.
