Upcoming Table Talk Sessions
June 20, 2012 If your company is thinking about raising equity - selling shares - there is a lot to get ready before you start asking for checks. This Table Talk will walk through the rather extensive list of things to prepare, from financial models, pitch decks and Executive Summaries to cap tables, reference lists, deal structures and exit options. Do you know if and why you need a PPM or should highlight EBITDA? Is your corporate legal work in order? Even if you don't need the cash for a year it's not too early to starting prepping for raising equity.
Equity Prep with Don Gooding
Grant writing for Small Businesses with Lee Cheever from the SBDC
June 27, 2012
Grant opportunities for businesses are different than those in the non-profit arena and the competition is tough. Knowing how to find the right funding source and putting together a strong proposal provide the best chances for success. In this workshop we will discuss how to find likely funding sources,
how to review program announcements, tips on preparing the different sections of the proposal, utilizing review
criteria, typical reasons for proposal rejection and what to do after an award (in addition to spending the money).
This will be a small group session tailored to the individual needs of the participants.
Place: MCED Offices, 2-4 pm
