Capital is the lifeblood of an early stage company. Without sufficient capital, a company founder may never be able to develop even the most promising and innovative product or service and bring it to market. A shortage of capital is a key reason for the failure of many early stage companies. While some company founders may be able to “bootstrap” a company and others may have access to grants, sooner or later, a company is likely to need capital from angel investors, professional investors or strategic partners.
Our panel will include executives from two Massachusetts-based early stage companies that have recently completed successful capital-raising transactions and an angel investor. Join us to get their perspectives on the capital-raising process, identifying potential investors, anticipating investor concerns, negotiating transaction terms and getting to funding.
