OpenBETA: Setting Your Financing Goals + Milestones

April 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” – The Cheshire Cat. OK that’s a little cheesy, but you need a plan to finance your company! But you can only raise the money you need to grow your company if your company is growing. If that sentence seems as mad as the Cheshire Cat, come to this OpenBETA lunch to find your road!

What you’ll learn?
–How orienting yourself around national fundraising milestones can enable you to raise the money you need when you need it
–How to get a 3-5x markup in the valuation of your company in the next round of fundraising (and why you shouldn’t optimize for valuation in your seed round)
–How to use these milestones and metrics to drive your daily work
–How to talk about your financing + milestones in your executive summary
