    There are many aspects to a fundable business - having a solid business model, understanding where you fit against your competition, and more. This seminar will touch on the key parts of a fundable business, and more importantly, how you convey that through your executive summary and your business plan. Kathleen Borie of PriceWaterhouseCoopers will outline the strategy that they recommend to their clients - on what's needed and how to get to that next round of funding.



    This seminar is designed for executive teams and founding members of early-stage companies who are looking to build a solid business through venture funding. In this seminar you will learn:

    • Recent information on current funding trends (data from the PWC Money Tree Report)
    • Key aspects that investors look for in executive summaries and business plans
    • How to utilize your information and skills that will lead to success in the funding process

    In addition, come hear a panel of investors who offer their insights from the trenches, and provide feedback on what's important to them in this challenging market.
