Great business ideas will only get a company so far. Every year hundreds of companies with great ideas go out of business simply due to lack of capital. There are funding sources out there, but many promising business owners are not sure where to look. If you are one of those people with great ideas, hitting your benchmarks, but still need a little more working capital to get to that next level, Angel Investors may be just what you need!
Get ready for some great mini-courses on Coursmos.com from Key Note speakers and some of the biggest investors from The Angel Expo. These courses will help you learn what Angel Investors look for when deciding to fund different opportunities. You need not only the right ideas, but also the right way to present them as well as a track record to show that your business is hitting its benchmarks. Randy Williams has an awesome introduction to the Keiretsu Forum and the Keiretsu Angel Expo on May 1, 2014.
The Keiretsu Forum is very serious about funding the right opportunities. Anyone looking for an Angel Investor should head to the Angel Capital Expo at Microsoft in Mountain View, CA. The address is: 1065 La Avenida St, Building One, Mountain View, CA 94043. The Expo runs from 7:30 and 5:00 pm.
The Keiretsu Forum is comprised of over 1,100 accredited investors. What this mean to you as a business owner is that these investors are well-known for backing the ventures they see as hitting their benchmarks on a consistent basis, but just need that little added capital to get to that next level. This also means that, when you present your ideas in a logical and precise manner to these investors, they can help your business with funding just as they have helped so many other businesses with their 27 different chapters on 3 continents. 50% of companies get funding, but they are carefully selected and prescreened to ensure that the investments made will be as successful as possible. Business must meet certain milestones, but the funding will be there if they meet those milestones.
It is often stated that most start-ups created this year will not be in business five years from now. The biggest, number one, reason for that is lack of funding. Make sure to catch Randy Williams’ mini course on Coursmos and head over to Microsoft in Mountain View, CA to the Angel Capital Expo on Thursday, May 1, 2014. The Expo runs from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. If your business is hitting benchmarks, you have a proven track record, but you just need that little extra infusion of funding to get to the next level (this doesn’t mean, necessarily, that you are making a profit yet), you could find exactly what you need at the Angel Capital Expo.
