Abstract:

Your concept is great.  Your solution is even better! The market is ready and you think you have the team to make it happen.  The only thing left is working capital.  You get one shot at it.  You need to raise money fast but the deal has to be right and has to provide enough “gas in the tank” to get you there and some!  But before you can execute you have to become “fundable”.  You want people begging you to take their investments but how? It starts with five key documents, lots of experience and know-how. 

This session, “The Fundable Entrepreneur”, will focus on how to prepare to pitch to angels, how to increase your chances of negotiating successful financing, and how “not to mess it up”.  An hour packed full of on-topic, ready-to-use, insightful knowledge from one of New England’s cornerstones in entrepreneurship, Ken Steinberg of Cambridge Research & Development.  As a member of the local angel community, Ken has seen hundreds of pitches.  Come learn from his experience and position yourself to win.
