BrightTALK Masterclass Series: Finding the Right Investor

Presented by

Jessica Dick, Co-founder of Five Years Time

About this talk

This webinar is part of BrightTALK's Masterclass Series. Raising Investment for your early stage business is a big decision. Whilst the process itself is gruelling, managing investors once they are on board has its own set of challenges. Although investment can feel like “free money”, it is in fact the most expensive cash you’ll ever raise, as the returns investors expect, along with the rights and privileges you must be prepared to grant them, can be very onerous to a startup. Indeed investors can make or break a business, and having a brilliant, supportive investor who shares your vision is gold dust and can propel you to the next level. Join our webinar with Jessica Dick, co-founder of Five Years Time, a company focused on supporting founders to get investment ready and navigate the minefield of the fundraising process. The webinar will present the different types of funding that are available to early stage businesses, and will focus on the key characteristics of angel investors and Venture Capital. The webinar will then explore the concept of "Smart Money" and will give you some examples of what to expect once the investment has come in. Finally we will give you tips around what to look for in an investor, what questions to ask and how to set up the relationship from the start to ensure smooth sailing.
