Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 6th and 7th, 2012session
The Art of Raising Capital, for Technology Startup Leaders
About This Session
Do you have dreams, or better yet, concrete plans to launch your own company?
This session is targeted at tech entrepreneurs who will eventually raise equity financing (via angel investors and/or venture capital) to grow their business. We'll cover the landscape of potential investor sources, the arcane terminology, and most importantly the art of speaking the language that investors seek from entrepreneurs. Topics include funding rounds, the elevator pitch, the key elements of an executive summary, the pitch deck, aiming for "less is more", etc. The session will be highly interactive, so bring your questions. Better yet, email them to me in advance. Sign up early, because the room was nearly full last year, with an extremely lively discussion.
