Professor Ira Weiss of the Booth Graduate School of Business recently did a presentation on how to raise capital. Too often, entrepreneurs have great ideas but can’t figure out how to get past the family and friends round to actually turn their good idea into a business. Ira’s slide deck is at this link. It’s well worth your time to scroll through and consider the concepts he covers. Hyde Park Angels doesn’t have a singular focus. We love to hear about great ideas and fund companies, but we are here to mentor, and educate as well. Ira’s presentation is an excellent way to educate yourself on the finer points of funding your company.
