Financing Your Business with Local Resources
May 16, 2018Free
Financing is one of the biggest challenges to a new or expanding business. Do you know where to find resources? Are you familiar with state and local programs available to you? What are your other options?
Energetics Technology Center, TEDCO and the Rural Maryland Council are offering startups, entrepreneurs, innovators, reseachers, post docs and retirees, the opportunity to attend an all-day workshop on ‘Financing Your Business with Local Resources’ on May 16, in Silver Spring, MD.
Keynote: Somnath Sengupta, Serial Entrepreneur and ETC Entrepreneur-in-Residence
“The Color of Money”
At any given stage in the cycle of entrepreneurship, taking an idea from its birth to fruition is a balance between keeping the artistic control over the idea with the right team and the funding that lets you do it. As the idea matures, so does the type(s) of funding. The share of control between the financier and the financed, any and all types of funding, shouldn’t become a tug of war. I’m happy to share my experiences of developing my own intellectual property, launching and financing a successful business (Paratek), and managing the profitable sale of my first company to Blackberry.
