Naked and Afraid – THE SEARCH FOR CAPITAL, Mon. May 5
May 1st, 2014 by Graham Bell
Whether you are an entrepreneur or even thought about being one, you know that there are two things to worry about – time and money.
Everyone is welcome at the upcoming installment of the popular EDAC – Jim Hogan Emerging Companies Series, where Jim and other panelists (Amit Gupta, President and CEO, Solido Design Automation, Inc. and Vishal Kapoor, Principal, Three Legged Stool, LLC.) will discuss the sources of money – from crowdfunding to institutional investment to intrapreneural capital. The panel will debate the opportunities and risks associated with those sources and which one might be right for you.
Every entrepreneur believes that they know their product, but often only from a technical capability perspective. How you position, communicate and sell your product may be more important than it’s underlying capability. Without having a keen understanding of what you are building, how capital efficient it is and who needs it, the chances of getting that capital are significantly diminished.
Silicon Valley continues to be a great place for entrepreneurship, and capital remains the only bridge from idea to reality. Attend this event to debate and refine the approaches in an ever changing landscape.
