Is your business investable or fundable?
Are you seeking financing for your business? Do you know what red flags investors and banks look for? Understanding what your financing options are and right-sizing your expectations are critical for any business owner. Learn the difference between equity investment, financing, and bootstrapping and which is the right one for your company.
This is a "doing" session. Participants will be creating a strategy to achieve needed funding, a strategy for cleaning up any previous funding rounds, and/or creating a plan to acquire a bank loan or other financing.
What you will learn:
- When you do and do not need investment and what investors look for in each stage of business.
- What investors look for when analyzing and reviewing a capitalization table.
- What banks need to understand about your business before they issue your loan.
- What VC investors like to see in your business model, team and addressable market.
