Finding the Right Financing For Your Startup
In this live event, we will explore the different financing options available to startup entrepreneurs based on the stage of your company’s growth, short-term needs, and long-term plans for growth. We will compare loans and share how to assess the “true cost of capital” of various funding options — with specific, real-world examples that entrepreneurs encounter during the fundraising journey.

During this webinar, we will discuss:
1. Stage appropriate funding options
2. Understanding debt vs equity financing
3. Comparing financing options and the cost of capital

Entrepreneurs are facing unprecedented circumstances right now. In the midst of this global pandemic, it can be daunting to find the right financing solution for your startup. With fewer opportunities for short-term working capital, and venture capital funds contracting, it’s become more important than ever to evaluate your financing options with eyes wide open.
