In our previous events, we have dispelled the notion that CVC’s only invest later stage. The fact that trend setting CVC’s like TDK Ventures invest in all stages and many are following suit. However, in order to attract CVC’s for partnerships and funding, founders need to plug gaps in their entrepreneurial education which typically they have picked up in bits and pieces and not undergone a structured methodology.
Participants will benefit from and be able to apply to their business to increase growth, competency and productivity.
There will be Live feedback through Q&A sessions.
