VC Investment in Food Startups
May 14, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$12
Thinking about starting a business in the food space? Have a business and want to raise capital? Looking to grow but don’t know how?
In many ways, it’s never been easier to start a food company. From products to services, marketplaces to mobile apps, the food space is HOT. While bootstrapping is preferred, some businesses are almost impossible to launch without capital. The web is filled with endless information on how to raise venture funding; however, the process can be unclear, Investors can be hard to find, and asking a complete stranger for 50k is never a simple task!
Join us Wednesday, May 14th at Nixon Peabody, 100 Summer St in Boston, for an evening with a veteran panel of angel investors and VCs who will cover trends in the food space, early stage investing, and identify the most important considerations when raising for your food startup, such as:
* How do you find the people you should be talking to?
* How do you get meetings with these people?
* Does “no” mean “maybe later”?
* How much money should you ask for?
* What happens once the VC joins your board?
If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, investor, or interested in business development related to food, restaurants, food products, food tech, services, or consumer packaged goods, you don’t want to miss this event!
6:15-7:15pm Panel + Q&A
7:15-8pm Networking Reception
