This webinar explains the different types of capital available to fund a startup; how to identify potential funding sources; how to evaluate competing funding proposals; and how to negotiate financing terms.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) January 12, 2018
Most startups are not destined to become billion dollar unicorns. Most, in fact, will fail and most of those that survive will never be more than small businesses. Whether and to what extent a startup will be successful depends on many factors. One set of factors is the foundational pillars on which the company is built, and includes things such as the company’s capital structure, financial controls, human capital, market niche, and marketing functions. This series explores each of these topics, giving startups and their advisors useful tools and insight into how they can build a foundation for success.
The first episode of the series, Raising Capital: Negotiating with Potential Investors, airs on January 16th at 11:00 AM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Jack O'Connor of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer. He is joined by Paul Clinkscales of Sunburst Digital, Inc., Robert Londin of Jaspan Schlesinger LLP, and Bob Dekker of Insight Advisory Partners.
Every business needs capital (cash) to fund its activities. But not all capital is created equal. At the most macro level, a business can raise cash by selling equity or by borrowing (and these alternatives are not by any means mutually exclusive). This webinar explains the different types of capital available to fund a startup; how to identify potential funding sources; how to evaluate competing funding proposals; and how to negotiate financing terms.
