Make your startup investable.

You’re an entrepreneur looking for investors so that you can achieve your vision. But what’s in it for them? During this talk you’ll be introduced to a tool for building the foundation of your pitch, which starts with understanding how investors look at your company. Spoiler alert: innovative, cutting-edge technology is only a fraction of the story…

Every entrepreneur needs to make their startup investable, even if they don’t plan to raise capital, because every entrepreneur is investing their own time and money in their startup. Looking after your own interests is the beginning of being able to look after your investors. Join us and learn how to take a step back from what you’re doing and see it through an investor’s eyes.
