New York, N.Y. – Phillips Lytle LLP will host a workshop at its New York City office for the Access Silicon Valley event, “Getting to WOW! The Art of Communicating Your Compelling Value Proposition.” The event will take place on Thursday, July 13, 2017 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Phillips Lytle’s New York City office, located at 340 Madison Avenue.

This workshop, hosted in collaboration with California-based Procopio Law Firm, is open to startup founders, startup executives, entrepreneurs, innovators, designers and developers. It will help guide attendees through communicating the essence of a startup company’s value proposition when raising capital, capturing market share and generating brand awareness. The event will be live streamed from Silicon Valley in New York, and other locations in a worldwide effort to connect tech ecosystems.

“We are dedicated to helping founders and startups by providing them with the resources necessary to be as successful as possible,” said event host Asaf Hahami, Phillips Lytle Special Counsel and a member of the Firm’s Venture Capital Team. “We’ve had many founders ask us for guidance on how to successfully raise capital and this workshop will really help them distill their startup’s value proposition and communicate that effectively.”

Prior to the 12:30 pm live stream from Silicon Valley, at 11:30 am, Mr. Hahami will introduce new members to the Access Silicon Valley New York group and moderate a discussion among attendees about how founders can leverage additional support for their startups within the NYC tech community.
