Webinar: Preparing University Start-Ups for Angel InvestmentsDate: January 16, 2019Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
A typical angel investor is approached by hundreds of companies seeking funding, and even the best ideas can get overlooked without a well-crafted pitch and the right preparation.
University start-ups can jump to the head of the pack if they understand and leverage their advantages over other new ventures, while also preparing effectively for the due diligence process. And tech transfer professionals can play a pivotal role in helping their start-up teams secure critical early-stage cash while avoiding common mistakes during due diligence that can cause once-eager investors to put away their checkbooks.
That’s why Technology Transfer Tactics, is sponsoring this critical webinar designed to help co-founders of early-stage start-ups prepare themselves for fundraising from angel investors:
