About the event

This event will provide a run-through of the steps and strategies startups can take to navigate the fundraising process through the role play of investor, marketing strategist and founder/ principal.

Presenters and panel include:

Topics covered:

  • “It seemed like a good idea at the time." From Crowdfunding Portal to Investment Bank.
  • “You and your regulator.” How the MN Department of Commerce tried to kill us, what FINRA really does and how the SEC actually cares.
  • “Satisficing.” Making decisions that are adequate but not optimal as we obsess about solving "today's problem. Understanding the principle of parsimony.  Recognizing that nobody cares --- and that's OK. 

Lessons learned:

  • Raising capital is as much about marketing as it is financing.
  • It is the SLOW conversion of social capital into financial capital.
  • Money comes in three waves: (1) From people who know, like and trust you; (2) from people who know someone who knows, likes and trusts you; (3) from people who hear about you from paid (or found) media.

Q & A to follow. We encourage you to bring your questions, objections --- and business cards!
