SBE Committee: The Life Cycle of a Start Up Part 1 - Raising Funds & Financing
One of the earliest challenges facing entrepreneurs/founders is securing the funding to turn their dream into a reality. In the SBE Committee's first event of a 4-part series focused on starting, scaling, going to market and stabilizing a small business/startup, we speak to experts on the funding side, from venture capital and bank lending, and we speak to founders on the startup side who have successfully raised capital. Through a moderated discussion with our panel, we explore how VCs and banks evaluate companies, and how a founder prepares to approach VCs and banks to launch their startup. We aim to share insights with our audience about a few of the ways small businesses and entrepreneurs in Thailand can fund their ideas.
