The national economy remains weak, and finding investors for start-ups as well as early to later-stage small businesses continues to be difficult. However, companies can improve their chances of procuring funding by having a better understanding of the process of how to reach angel and venture capital investors. Presentations will focus on the "Top Ten Categories of Knowledge" which all entrepreneurs and small business owners who wish to raise capital should be conversant in.

    - What are the current trends in angel and venture capital investing.
    - Who you can and can't rely upon for accurate information.
    - How to determine if your company is fundable.
    - The importance of having a strategic plan to raise capital.
    - Assessing potential investors; targeting those favorable to your industry.
    - Why and how to take control of the funding process.
    - Terms: It's not about dilution but dissolution.
    - Strategic checklist of dealing with investors.
    - Navigating your way through due diligence.
    - Investor access and advice - should you pay or not.
