Why Investors Aren't Biting
Finding the right financial partner for your business can be a daunting task. Many companies make the mistake of trying to run before they can walk: they begin pursuing investors before they have solidified their business foundation and have the right team in place to achieve their vision. In addition to a strong operational framework, to successfully choose an investment partner business owners should understand the different options for raising capital based on their company’s lifecycle, and how different valuations and investment models will impact their business—the journey from startup to $5 million will be different than the journey from $5 million to $30 million. In this discussion, René Yang, Principal at Vista Equity Partners, will discuss key tips for successfully evaluating investment options and break down the knowledge you need to find the right financial partner. Attendees will gain better insight into what investors are looking for and what entrepreneurs should consider as they are building their business to maximize value.
