As part of a monthly series of discussions relating to “the capital needs of advanced entrepreneurs,” Rollins professor and former GrayRobinson partner Bill Grimm will be speaking about angel funding on March 28th at the Crummer Graduate School of Business on the Rollins College campus. The event will run from 7:30- 9:00am and will include a dialogue moderated by Florida Venture Sourcing founder Dennis Pape.
Questions to be covered include: “How do you establish relationships with potential angel investors? How do you make the initial “elevator ” pitch? How do you make the 15-20 minute pitch to sell the opportunity to invest in your company and propose the investment terms? After this pitch, what then?” The discussion will be tailored to entrepreneurs with a scalable business plan who will be seeking funding in the near future.
The event is free and open to the public, but attendees are encouraged to register here.
