Event Details

Great ideas are born every day.  Research, detailed business plans and customer feedback are a good start but not sufficient to seriously attract investors.  What do today’s investors look for in a company?  Once you have attracted investors, what are some of the more productive negotiating strategies?  What's a reasonable level of investment should you expect, and what should you expect to give up?  When is it best to tap friends and family vs. other outside investors?  How early in the growth process is it reasonable to expect angel or venture capital participation?  How about strategic investors?

Come and join a first rate panel of experts that will discuss answers to these and other questions based on practical experience.

PRIZE

Free copy of "Get Funded" to be given to attendees who ask the the most interesting questions.  More about the book at http://fivemountainpress.com/Funding.html
