Description

Grind, Grit, Grace and Gumption! Raising money for your dream business...

Presented by Arezou Zarafshan
Managing Partner, Cyrus Ventures Fund

Raising capital to launch or grow a venture is a foreign and intimidating subject for many people, men and women alike. The reality is that there is no "process" for getting funding from investors or regular people. The journey of raising money from your friends, investors or others requires tools and techniques that no one tells you about, a thick skin and uber amounts of grit.

In this talk, you will learn about:

  • Sources of money that are available to you that you might not have heard of

  • Tactics for effectively "making the ask" when talking with investors

  • Specific examples of how others have successfully raised thousands or millions in funding

Raising money for your business is about the Grind, Grit, Grace and Gumption; whether you are wanting to launch the next Instagram or open a neighborhood coffeeshop.
