Launch startup. Raise capital. Rapidly grow to either IPO or get acquired. Move on to your next big idea. This seemingly simple path isn’t so easy. The second step can be a big hurdle especially since many businesses fail from a lack of funding.
The timing of when a startup requires funding depends largely on the nature and type of the business. But once you have realized the need for fundraising, entrepreneurs find themselves asking a variety of questions – How do I finance my startup? What funding sources should I explore? How do I get to the point where venture capital is interested in my startup? What are the differences between angel investment and venture capital investment? How do I decode and figure out what resources are best for my startup? Where do you even start?
Join us as our panel from our Elevate Southeast Indiana partnership region discusses fundraising options for your startup and cover ways startups raise money, the different investment types that exist, how to start these conversations even if you’re early-stage without a lot of traction, and more.
