Forum Details

In the last year we have witnessed a surge in venture financing activity and particularly more so in New York tri-state area. Infact, there have been recent reports of companies receiving multiple term sheets. Some VC's have mentioned in our forums that they are passing good deals because of what they consider high-valuation. The financing landscape and the rules are changing everyday.

We'll discuss everything about raising capital in this forum : How are the following criterias important and to what extent do they play a role in funding decission.

- The Idea
- The Management team
- Product/Services
- Paid Customer/Trial Customer
- Strategic Partners
- Revenue
- Financial Strength
- Burn Rate
- Valuation
- Exit Strategy

We'll ask hard questions, you have never hard before.
