Raising equity capital is challenging at best. Becoming an Investor-Ready Entrepreneur is designed to educate and prepare growth-oriented entrepreneurs to successfully engage private equity investors. Getting ready includes a wide range of activities and decisions that will help the entrepreneur with their business in a number of ways. The program was developed with direct input from experienced entrepreneurs, angel investors, angel networks/fund executives, and venture capitalists, and provides an "insider's look" into the world of equity funding. By understanding what investors look for, entrepreneurs can reduce barriers to funding, navigate the process more easily, and increase the chances of obtaining funding for their business.
The program will be held in Winston-Salem on August 2, 8:00 AM - 5:30 PM, at Worrell Center, Wake Forest University. Registration is $295; however, a special scholarship rate of $95 is available courtesy of state and local sponsors. Space is limited, so registrations are on a first come, first served basis.
