TechZulu and CAPLINKED are teaming up to put together an amazing panel for all the startups and entrepreneurs out there.  And if you just so happen to not be in town or are not from Southern California no worries.  TechZulu will be live streaming the entire panel and you will be able to participate virtually.  We will be discussing how you as an entrepreneur could finance your startup.

Running on empty can only take you so far.  Eventually your startup needs to begin churning in some revenue, get acquired, or both would be ideal.  As the saying goes “It takes money to make money.” However, where does that financing come from for your startup?  Savings, Friends/Family, Angel, VC?  Most businesses require some sort of initial capital for things like marketing, PR, programmers, etc.

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), “While poor management is cited most frequently as the reason businesses fail, inadequate or ill-timed financing is a close second.”

So join us for this totally FREE and great event we have lined up and learn what it will take and how you will get to financing your startup.
