Intro to Angel Fundraising
Wednesday, February 6th from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Learn about the fundraising marketplace from active early stage investor Tytus Michalski. This class will provide a thorough overview of the market for early stage investment and teach students to distinguish between different sources of capital, including VC, angel investors, and private equity.
We will explore the following common questions about fundraising:
- What are the pros and cons of different sources of capital?
- Which one is best suited for my business now and the future?
- Who are early stage investors? Where can I find them and how do I identify the right ones?
- How can I be more effective in targeting, pitching, and negotiating investment for my business?
