About this event

Many business owners have strong growth potential but have reached a point where future growth requires external funding. This external funding is greatly dependent on whether the business is “investor ready” or not.

For technology entrepreneurs preparing to raise capital, this workshop will guide them and outline the basic requirements in doing so .

BDO’s Technology & Life Sciences Group will present a two-part course, for tech entrepreneurs preparing to raise capital. A range of topics will be covered, including:

  • How external funders view your financial statements and projections
  • Understanding the basics and impact of valuations
  • How to build robust and supportable financial models
  • How all of those elements come together to help support successful fund-raising strategies


Course 1 – Session Overview

Session 1: September 23rd from 1-3PM

Session 2: September 30th from 1-3PM
