Funding your Innovation  2:00 – 3:00 pm
Capital is critical to turn your idea into reality. You may know the options, but do you know which is the best fit for your particular business? And more importantly, do you know how to put yourself in front of the right people and what it then takes to seal the deal? After all, it is not only about which type of investor you want, but which type of investor wants you! Wouldn’t it help to have a better understanding of the people who make those determinations? That is what this track is all about. In it, you will gain vital insights into working with different investor groups, from the financiers themselves. What do they do? How do they scout for prospects? How do they make investment decisions and how can you get their attention? You will also learn about the world of grant financing and gain a valuable understanding of which grants you should pursue how to pursue them.
