TechCrunch Live focuses on helping entrepreneurs build venture-backed businesses. Usually, getting funding is the first step. We will talk to Choksi, Gates, about their first meeting, how Choksi decided to invest in Birdies and how they have worked together ever since. We will also look at Birdies' early pitch deck to see what appealed to NVP and other investors.
