How to Negotiate with Investors and Get to a Close – Spring + VanTec Workshop

May 30, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am PDT

This workshop is offered in partnership with VanTec Angel Network, exclusively to entrepreneurs who have pitched or who have applied to pitch at VANTEC.

Managing your business’s operations and raising seed capital can feel like a balancing act. As a founder, you’re essentially juggling two full-time jobs at the same time!

And with this added time and stress, you may feel inclined to put your funding goals on the backburner.

Our advice?: Don’t!

If you take a half-hearted approach to fundraising, three things are guaranteed to happen:

  • Your business’s growth potential will be compromised
  • You will feel overwhelmed managing multiple investor negotiations
  • You will risk the possibility of closing equitable investor deals

If you want your best shot at tough investors, negotiations skills will be crucial to achieving your numbers.

Come to our workshop if:

  • You are a co-founder of a post-launch business
  • You are looking to raise capital for your company

You will learn about:

  • The most efficient ways to close your investment round
  • How to close the toughest investors
  • How to negotiate on the fly with multiple investors
  • How to hit or exceed your fundraising targets

Let’s take the risk out of raising your round, and maximize your chances of success.
