We will discuss several topics and provide you different angles to deal with certain aspects and issues related to the funding process . The angel investor, the lawyer, the M&A advisor and the serial entrepreneur will share their thoughts and tips & tricks of their trade with you.
Topics which will be discussed are:
How do different parties value businesses and how do you come to some sort of agreement
What is the difference between friends and family, Angel and VC money (also looking at responsibilities and restrictions that you will have to deal with if you take on external money)
What are the key points that investors want to hear from you about in a presentation
How do you raise money from angels and VC’s (given the different processes and requirements)
How do you build/ change management team post investment
What is a business plan and what’s the point of having one?
