Harvard i-lab | Startup Secrets: Funding Strategies to Go the Distance
At a time when there are so many ways to fund your startup, from angels to accelerators, it’s more important than ever to develop a funding strategy that fits your particular needs. Maybe you shouldn’t even raise money! In this session we’ll explore the options and help you think through not just your initial funding but a trajectory to stay funded until you’ve reached your goal, be that an independent public company or a self-sustaining social venture. We’ll also try to remove the mystique of VC and as usual bring some case examples to bear to bring it all to life.
