Being investment ready can make or break a business. It is therefore crucial for high growth entrepreneurs and early-stage ventures to identify and approach the right investors.

Lack of adequate training and information often results in a dangerous knowledge gap between companies seeking money and investors which can seriously compromise SMEs’ ability to be successful in accessing finance.

This webinar aims to prepare early-stage start-ups to approach the right investor knowing in advance the rules of the game to increase their chances to be successful in securing finance and establishing with investors a fair collaborative governance framework until the exit moment.

The webinar will consist of online interactive support which will be provided by an early-stage investor with long-lasting experience in investing in early-stage companies and evaluating business ideas across Europe.

European entrepreneurs and start-ups through the training seminar would get prepared for collaborating and negotiating with investors.
