Following our very successful first two sessions, we are returning to the topic of finding an Angel to help provide some guidance to this essential process.
You’ve got an idea, you probably got started, have some traction... you need some funding, support, advice to get to the next level.
Business Angels are investors and business advisors who come on board with capital, experience and connections to help you get to the next level.
How do you find them? How do you approach them? How do you get them interested? How do you choose the right one for you? How do you retain a majority stake? What are the common errors?
We’ve put together an evening to help you get the answers you need.
We will begin with a workshop, covering all the aspects of getting investment, such as:
- What is the right type of investor for your business
- When is your business "investor ready"
- Why full business plans are not as important as you think
- How to obtain funding and give away as little equity as possible
- How to get your deal seen by investors
- A practical approach to finding a business angel
- What angel investors are really looking for
- How to find and approach angel investors
- Tools you must have when looking for investors
- Main approaches to raising angel capital
Following the workshop, we’ll bring in the angels and the startups who have successfully raised funding from them, so you can speak to them, get some useful pre-investment advice, learn from them, and even have a drink with them after.
