Most companies, in the beginning, start out as a concept, i.e., as an idea in an entrepreneur’s head. There’s likely been and continues to be significant research activity around a new product or service offering. Usually, there has been little or no business development.

As entrepreneurs become serious about launching their business, they must also become serious about developing a funding strategy that will carry them through the earliest stages of a company’s growth. This is what Robert will tackle in his lecture: how much money you’ll need, when you’ll need it, what milestones will be achieved, who you can go to, and the pros and cons of engaging various funding sources.

Robert Neivert is currently a venture partner at 500 startups focusing on B2B enterprise software and a veteran of nine companies. Twice as CEO, and multiple times as CFO, COO, and heads of sales and marketing organizations. He holds a BS, MS in Engineering from Stanford as well as BA & MBA degrees.
