    You have developed a technology or a concept for a business. Is it a business that will ultimately attract venture capital funding? All will depend on your business model. How will you generate revenues and how will you penetrate your market. If your business model matches the criteria of the venture capital community, how do you plan and execute a strategy to acquire these funds. This seminar is focused on building a business model and planning a strategy to acquire the capital needed to finance the business until you can generate your own revenues.
