Investor Readiness Course, featuring Michael Horten

Entrepreneurial growth companies generally require one or several rounds of financings. Unfortunately, it happens far too often that entrepreneurs fail in this endeavor; not because their company is not fundable, but as a result of their lack of understanding of the capital raising process and/or today’s market for early-stage capital.
The Horten CC Investor Readiness Course is aimed at filling this knowledge gap and will cover all of the finance, legal and tax issues that an entrepreneur will need to know to have a successful capital raise. The course will be highly interactive -- enrollment will be limited to 20 participants for members of Atlanta Tech Village only. Course attendance also includes lunch! Please register for all of the course dates that you can attend.
At the end of this course, you should double your chances of having a successful raise.
Actionable takeaways:

  • How do I make sure my company is fundable?
  • How much should I raise?
