Series 3: Start-Up Capital – Best Practices for Funding New Ventures
So you have the next killer idea. Raising start-up capital could be the difference between serving a handful of customers versus millions of customers. But raising startup capital is so daunting! Luckily today, there are many options for funding startups, but finding and securing “smart money” takes diligent research, good negotiating skills, and, above all, an unflagging commitment to launching your new business.
Come join us as our experienced panel guides you on the key factors that matter when it comes to raising capital. When is the right time to raise venture capital? Which type of investor is best suited for your startup: angels, venture capitalists, strategic investors, potential partners, other investment sources? How should you position your business vis-à-vis each capital source? What can you do to make your company stand out from the crowd? Which investor(s) should you choose? Interact with a panel of VCs, angels and attorneys to discuss the best practices for each role to contribute to the success of your startup.
