Getting Investor Ready — 5/2 & 5/9
May 2, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
ARE YOU AN INVESTOR-READY ENTREPRENEUR?
Raising equity capital is challenging at best. Becoming an Investor-Ready Entrepreneur (IRE) is designed to educate and prepare growth-oriented entrepreneurs to successfully engage private equity investors. This full day program was developed by experienced entrepreneurs, angel investors, angel networks/fund executives and venture capitalists, and provides an “insider’s look” into the world of equity funding. By viewing investors as “customers of equity,” entrepreneurs can reduce barriers to funding, navigate the process more easily, and increase the chances of obtaining funding.
On May 2nd & May 9th at 6pm, Tim Janke will give a sneak-peek into the all-day Investor-Ready Entrepreneur workshop. Come learn the best methods and practices for raising equity capital.
