Optimizing Your Access to Capital
Fundraising is an uncertain process that is almost completely driven by your ability to create FOMO (Fear of Mission Out) among a community of investors, many of which you probably have never met, and most of which do not know you. How do you go about raising a round of finance with money hitting your account at the right time, at the best possible terms?
This session looks at the tools of the trade, which are evolving day by day. It is driven by tested underlying models provided by open resources like SERAF (www.seraf-investor.com, a leading source of early stage funding resources), and touches on subjects like:
- How do I identify the highest potential investors ?
- How do I move the process forward step by step?
