Building relations with investors
You have high growth ambitions with your scale-up and therefore you need money, money, money – next to other resources such as skilled employees.
You’ve not started your scale-up with as major goal being able to deal with investors, but you probably feel that dealing with them is a time consuming necessary evil that detracts you from developing new products and bringing in new customers.
Is it an evil process? Not necessarily. If you are able to align the best suited investors for your company, then they’ll fuel your company to growth and bring much more than just money.
Sophie Manigart (Professor at Vlerick Business School) will guide you through the landscape of raising finance.
