Positioning Your Company for Outside Investment: Do's and Don'ts
You’ve built your company from a concept to a full-fledged start-up. You’re now ready to grow even further — and take on outside investors. But what should you be doing to ensure a successful investment? What are the most common rookie mistakes? And what can you do now to prepare for subsequent rounds of investment?
Please join NewSpring Capital, members of Pepper Hamilton's Emerging Growth and Technology Practice Groups, and local tech companies for a discussion of outside investment. In this interactive session, the panelists will give their thoughts, and answer your questions, on what your company should be doing and what pitfalls you should avoid.
Our esteemed panel includes:
