UCF-BIP Volusia – WOW Fridays’ Fundamentals of raising capital 101

May 31 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

“In business, bootstrappers typically rely on savings, early cash flow, and penny-pinching to fund startup companies, rather than seeking external funding in the form of loans or investments. Bootstrapping companies’ founders try to line up customers and suppliers early while taking little or no capital” – Bloomberg BusinessWeek.

This Bootcamp will help you to understand everything about how to fund your business seeking external funding from bankers and investors.

Topics to be covered:

  • Bootstrapping
  • Funding from Family and Friends
  • Crowdfunding
  • Loans and Credit Cards from Banks
  • Angel Investors
  • Venture Capital
