The Series is entitled: ADVISING THE START-UP 2016
Among the Panelist for this Episode # 1 was Robert Londin of Jaspan Schlesinger LLP.
The path from an idea to a startup is fueled by hard work, creativity and working capital. The latter, investment capital, is a necessity—but understanding how to raise capital is rarely a simple question. Before seeking investor funds, it is important to understand the market of potential investors and what they will look for before making an investment. Because startups don’t have long track records, entrepreneurs must demonstrate an obtainable vision for future growth and an appropriate proposed use of requested capital. In turn, an entrepreneur must understand what it is that an investor may ask for in return—whether it be in the form of equity or debt, or both.
Understanding a startup’s needs as well as the unique market for startup financing are imperative to advising a startup as they seek capital and negotiate with potential investors. This webinar provided entrepreneurs and his or her advisor with an overview of capital raising, and practical tips for negotiating with savvy investors.
