Startup Lunch Hour: The Road to Raising Venture Capital

Startup Lunch Hour

Invest Detroit Ventures and Bamboo Detroit bring you a monthly lunch and learn series sharing knowledge on how to conceive, build and grow your startup. Bring your lunch, and we will bring a fun and informative session.

Each month, Cayse Llorens of Invest Detroit Ventures and a special guest will present on topics crucial to startups. In addition, we will be hosting a local entrepreneur to lead us through their company's success in relation to our monthly topic.

May's Topic: The Road to Raising Venture Capital

The Road to Raising Venture Capital

There is definitely not one sole avenue to attracting capital for your business. For instance, what types of funding are you trying to attract? Angel, friends & family or traditional VC? As you enter meetings with funders, what needs to be prepared and presented -- business plan, executive summary, slide deck, etc...? As you buildout your team, the makeup of your core team members may dictate what type/level of funding you are able to access. Have you thought about different firms to approach, if so, does your company fit into their investment strategy?

To answer your questions about raising venture capital, May's lunch and learn will be a casual hour, not following a particular format and light on presented content.

We thought to open up the hour to you and allow questions to be asked directly to members of the funding community.
