ESADE Alumni Entrepreneurship is organising a session on how to face your first round of funding with business angels. The session, led by Pau Barbarà, manager of Esade BAN and Alumni Entrepreneurship, will take place on Monday, January 20, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., in Esade Barcelona (Av. Pedralbes 60-62).
We will explore key issues that will enable you to successfully undertake a round of funding for your startup with business angels and other private investors.
Is it possible to raise money for my project? What are the minimum requirements that I have to meet? What sort of investor am I looking for? How should the round be structured financially? How can I stand out from all the other startups in the market? These are just a few of the topics that will be addressed.
The session is designed for entrepreneurs whose startups are involved in or preparing for their first round of funding, as well as future entrepreneurs who are interested in learning more about this procedure.
