What to do when you run out of money.
Dealing with investors.
We've done this a few times before and folks have loved it. We do a mock pitch / conversation between investor and entrepreneur on negotiation and difficult scenarios. Randy Adler and Dane Atkinson come together to do a mock scenario of how to handle investors when you run out of money. What the financial implications are and what can you do.
Out of the context, you are welcome to ask questions and look at how to address fundraising from burn rates, run rates, and revenue planning.
