Raising capital is crucial for any company. Sufficient capital helps ensuring R&D, Due Diligence, Legal and Accounting services, Marketing, and improves hiring potential. Unfortunately it's not that easy to raise capital, and you often think about just blasting all the active investment funds with your business plan, praying that everything will turn out ok when this approach has low chance of success! To avoid unnecessary hassles, you need to pick your investor carefully. This workshop will show you how to make the good choice.
