Many first time entrepreneurs think all they have to do is explain their idea to a group of angels or VCs, and they’ll have investors clamoring to give them money.

While that might have been the case in the go-go days of the late 1990’s, that approach is not going to get you far in the current economic climate.

So how do some startups, with apparently no better ideas or teams that others, seem to become investor magnets, with multiple term sheets and favorable valuations?

Our Guest Investor will explore these questions, and more, to help you understand how to become a Top Investor Magnet.
• How do I figure out the right kind of investment capital for my company?
• How do I figure out which investors would find me & my startup attractive?
• How do I find out what advantages each one brings to the table, besides money?
• How do I find out where they are on their investment cycle, and why does this matter?
• How do I get a good understanding of their investment criteria?
• How do I get an introduction to these potential investors?
• I’ve found the right investors, and I’ve got my introductions lined up, so what does my startup need to look like to make them actively want to invest?
