Starting a company is easy and relatively cheap BUT building a company takes a lot of cash, and your funding strategy can make or break your company. Before you raise a dime you must know not only your business canvas and model cold, but also what key milestones and funding inflections are likely so that you can prepare for multiple outcomes along the way and understand the intended and unintended consequences of each round of capital and source.  In this session, entrepreneurs Chris J Snook (LaunchHaus, Ft. Collins Startup Week) and Krista Morgan (P2Binvestor) will talk about funding strategy and share tips and lessons learned for making the right choices along the road to funding and financing your company’s growth. Snook and Morgan will talk about diverse dilutive and non-dilutive capital sources and other places to find the cash you need to grow.

This session will be candid, interactive, and informal. You’ll walk away with the real story behind how things work in the realm of all things funding.

Thursday's Austin Startup Week lineup is supported by athenahealth.
