Are you ready to debunk myths, clear the smoke and understand your financing options?
Join BEACON: The DC Women Founders Initiative, capital providers and entrepreneurs to break down the funding landscape, connect with experts, and improve your understanding of the fundraising options that best fit your business. Through this three-part track series, entrepreneurs and small business owners will (1) understand the funding landscape, (2) identify the funding source they need, and (3) work directly with experts and resource providers to address personalized needs through January 2019.
For the first part of the series, experts will provide TED-style talks and an interactive discussion answering your questions on DC's fundraising landscape. 20 participants will be selected to advance to the second and third workshops, taking place between October 2018 and January 2019.
Topics discussed will include:
-What financing options exist?
- What should entrepreneurs ask themselves before seeking a financing option?
- How do companies/organizations provide funding for early-stage companies?
- How can entrepreneurs plan ahead?
