Technology Transfer Webinar 25: Telling Your Story With Numbers: Building a Fundable Financial Model For Your Startup

22-02-19 | 15:30 h - 16:30 h

Looking to build a fundable financial model for your startup, but don't know where to start?

You are not alone.... creating a set of realistic financial projections is one of the most daunting tasks for most founders! And yet, it is critical to effectively communicate funding needs and valuation expectations to investors and potential business partners, while at the same time serving as an important tool to prioritize spending and guarantee the economic survival of your startup.
Based on her experiences as a Silicon-Valley valuation expert, entrepreneur, start-up advisor and Stanford Lecturer, Efrat Kasznik will provide practical insights and hands-on tools for the creation of a balanced, credible and fundable financial model for the early stage venture, while highlighting some of the pitfalls to avoid when presenting your financial plan to investors.

The webinar is targeted at EU and Japanese startups and SMEs seeking to raise funding from equity investors (Angel investors, Venture Capital, Corporate Venture, Private Equity), or those looking to get a better understanding of the funding and valuation cycle of a new venture, from the early stage to exit.

Registration deadline: 21/02/2019
