How to make your business attractive to investors!

At some point in the life of almost every business, investment will be needed whether to invest in an infrastructure upgrade, launch a new product or spread the risk and the business that has prepared itself properly will be better placed to attract investors.

In this session you will hear about and discuss:

  • What investors look for beyond the financials
  • What factors indicate a well-run business to an investor
  • What you should be looking for in an investor
  • Some common mistakes in raising funds from investors
  • How to make the process as painless as possible.

Building a resilient business

Resilient businesses tend to have certain characteristics in common, notwithstanding the differences in their platforms, markets and target client-base.

In this session you will hear about and discuss:

  • aligning the interests of your workforce with that of your business using share options and other incentivisation schemes
  • ensuring your contracts meet your needs and have been properly finalised
  • building flexibility into your longer-term commitments where possible
  • ensuring your funding and equity arrangements are properly documented (including with friends and family)
  • understanding the early warning signs of insolvency so you can take action quickly.
