About this Event
For their nascent startup, entrepreneurs should have an investment strategy in place that places them in control for increasing revenue and managing available working capital for generating a lucrative, viable and scalable venture. An effective funding, growth, and exit strategy will make it easier for startup founders to gain the confidence of angel investors, form critical alliances, and generate positive cash flow. Learn from an experienced and successful startup entrepreneur about business strategy, presenting and managing a discrete business idea and creating financial soundness as core factors that are sought by angel investors. Discover what investors want you to show as your pathway to revenue and profitability. Find how when, why, and how you should fund your startup yourself, take out a business loan, recruit personal contacts, friends, and family, seek angel investors, form alliances, and pursue venture capital. This will be a highly interactive workshop that will cover crucial preparation to find the funding you need. Compare how to assess and address various aspects of your company to ensure its overall readiness. Find out how to examine your team’s overall health from every angle, research your industry, assess competitors, and measure your market. Learn how you may define your innovation, prepare financial projections, and determine how much money to raise and when you should, plus decide whether to tap into grants, debt, or equity.
