Early-stage? Need capital to finance your growth? This seminar is for you. It will provide you with a step-by-step approach to building a small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) that will appeal to seasoned early-stage investors and magnetize their capital.
Who should attend?

* targets these milestones in a specific sequence, and
* executes this SME-building strategy with sound project-management practices to achieve these milestones effectively.
