Investor Brett Topche, founder of the University of Pennsylvania–focused investment firm Red & Blue Ventures, has said it before: any company he backs needs to be transparent and listen to market feedback.

To hear more about what gets the investor’s attention these days, catch Topche at Startup Grind on Sept. 20, in a conversation moderated by 1776’s Anthony Maher. The event is happening at Pennovation, which is conveniently where Topche’s offices are located.

“I’m hoping people get a better sense for what goes into the thought process around an investment,” the investor told via Slack. “Especially at the seed stage, and how best to utilize their investors once they’re on board.”

Topche has been in venture capital and private equity for over 15 years. Prior to cofounding Red & Blue, he spent nine years at investment firm MentorTech Ventures.
