SME Accelerate Workshop – How to be Financially Attractive to Funders

SME-Accelerate Workshop Series brings to you…

 How to be Financially Attractive to Funder ?

In today’s economy, funders, investors and bankers are becoming more selective of business and projects they bank and invest in. As the market becomes more and more competitive for SMEs, there is a greater and greater need to know how to develop and pitch the stability in your company, for funders to take a second look…

Thus, this series of SME-accelerate is urging businesses to raise the bar in terms of viability, but first being aware of what bankers and investors look at when they look at a company. Aside from just profitability what else do funders look at? What determines their decision?

Do you have the right funding for your expansion?

Most businesses get to a point where “self-funding” can no longer meet their growth needs, and going to bank or investor is much needed…

Some companies source hard for funds without really knowing what bankers and investors actually look for in their companies…

And if you are like most businesses, and need to know what bankers and funders look at, so you can build it into place

This is one day you cannot miss…
