Intertrade Ireland Top Run Venture Capital Half-Day Workshop
InterTradeIreland are once again organising their popular venture capital half-day workshop. The objective of the workshop is to help early stage and new businesses experience the stages and issues in raising venture capital finance.
The workshop will use a real venture capital case which is writen by Lucius Cary who is a Venture Capitalist based in Oxford. Lucius Cary has led four Venture Capital Trust Funds and invested millions of pounds in dozens of start up businesses at the angel and first round funding stage(s).
The workshop participants will be entrepreneurs and senior managers who have built the first phase of a business and are now looking to raise venture capital, angel investment, or other external equity. The workshop will be delivered through an eight part venture capital case and the participants will take the roles of the investor and the start up business management to experience the issues of:
Management team – skills, risks and rewards
Customers delivering revenue and sales
Raising finance and what VCs look for
Deal structure basic approaches
Constraints to profitable sales growth
Competitive Advantage protection, and innovation
Cash flows, risks/sensitivities, and exit.
What previous participants said:
‘Fascinating case study enhanced by having a knowledgeable instructor at hand to answer questions.‘
”The opportunity for discussion was great. The case study informative and well presented. Putting attendees on the spot to ‘say what they would do next’ was very useful, and a deterrent to day dreaming.’
