Fundraising is not for the fainthearted

Information :

Every aspiring entrepreneur today sees fundraising as his/her “pot of gold at the end of the rainbow”. But as you know, it is a market with many more ventures than investors. Raising funds is an art-form that needs some luck, some connections, a lot of perseverance, the know-how, and of course a good idea and team.

How do you stand out among the crowd, when is the right time, how much is enough, what should you go armed with for a meeting with an investor, how should you prepare, which investor is right for you?

To answer these, and better prepare you to fundraise, IvyCamp is organizing a workshop at Eximius, IIM Bangalore at 4:00PM on 5th August, 2017. The workshop will be led by fundraising experts, and an entrepreneur who will share his own experience in raising funds successfully.
