Funding For Startups

Funding For Startups

It is rarely possible for start-ups to raise sufficient capital to kick-start their operations, launch products and break even. Although a ‘one-time investment’ strategy is theoretically possible, it is hard to cite examples of any successful start-up that has gone this route.

Equity financing is one of the best ways to raise funds for a Start-up.

Equity financing is money lent in exchange for ownership in a company. New businesses can use equity financing to finance operations for their start-ups, or when they need to offset existing debt. Equity funding allows the entrepreneur to obtain funds without incurring debt, improving cash flow. This will allow business owners to focus their attention on making their product(s) profitable rather than paying back their debtors.

The amount of equity an investor (angel/VC) holds is a factor of the company’s stage of development when the investment occurs, the perceived risk, the amount invested, and the relationship between the entrepreneur and the investor.

How do investors categorize start-ups? What are different stages of equity funding? What are key points of a Term Sheet? What are Angels and VCs and how are they different from each other?

It is time to get insights into equity funding at ForStartups. This is free to attend, and registration is a must!

Digital Media For Startups
With the global internet population at over 2.7 billion and growing at a rate of 10% YoY, increasing number of customers now make their purchase decisions online. The story is no different in India – with more than 60% of India’s population below the age of 40, we find a lot of them logging into to the internet and social media proactively. With increasing disposable income, this crowd too is sure to make a large portion of their purchases online. Digital Media Marketing is thus a quintessential tool today.

Given the above scenario, it is not surprising that one finds the power and influence of paid media advertising, including print ads, TV commercials, radio, and even online digital campaigns, is waning in favor of unpaid, earned, and owned messaging from your website, social media, key market influencers, and existing customer word-of-mouth. The promise of digital connectivity has also encouraged organizations – political parties, NGOs, large and small corporate to try to engage with them proactively through the digital media.

Find your answers! Participate in NSRCEL’s DigitalMedia for Startups seminar to get inputs on Digital Media Marketing and to generate ideas on how you could leverage this crucial marketing tool to make your business more successful.

Prof. Sabarinathan G, Chair Person, NSRCEL @ IIMBWhy Equity For Start-ups?

Among the more important decisions that an entrepreneur makes is that of raising capital. Many choices have to be made in this context: Debt versus Equity. Own funds versus Funding from outside investors and so on. These choices have long term implications for the entrepreneur as well as the start-up. Equity funding is essential for the growth of a startup. Apart from providing critical funding equity investors also often bring added value by way of connections and strategic advice.

At the same time raising equity capital means sharing control and sharing wealth with the investors in the firm. Allowing investors to engage with the management of the startup calls for a certain degree of compatibility between the investor and the management of the enterprise. Absence of such compatibility can lead to unhappy relationships between the investor and the management team.

All things considered, managing the equity of a start-up is among the most critical decisions that an entrepreneur needs to make. It involves many trade-offs on the entrepreneurial journey. Which makes Managing the Equity of A Start Up a challenge. What does dilution of equity mean? How does the arithmetic of dilution work? How does an entrepreneur decide on when to raise equity? And how much of equity to raise?

Managing equity mobilization is not a science. It is best to learn about it from those who have been engaged in that art as entrepreneurs, investors and analysts.

Start-ups are useful contributors to the economy as a whole. Research has shown that the innovative fast growing start-ups- the gazelles – are almost the sole contributors of new jobs in advanced economies like the US. However, the world of start-ups, is full of challenges, and sustainability and longevity through are often rewards for grit, determination and hard work. What is generally obvious is the challenge of fast growth- but what is not obvious is the benefits of being a growth – oriented start-up. While start-up entrepreneurs have very little control over the context in which they operate and thrive, there definitely exists scope for them to develop a perspective that enables them to expand their vision, seek out opportunities for growth and channelize their energies in realizing growth through efficient management.

The ForStartups event … will address this issue of growth orientation for start-ups.

Session 1: How do you position start-ups for growth?
Session 2: How do you make growth happen?
Session 3: Learning from those who succeeded in achieving growth

Do drop in to get insights into growth for start-ups none other than Prof. Kumar K. His areas of interests are Entrepreneurship, Partnerships of Start-ups, Growth and Strategic Management of New Ventures
