Innovation Grant Info Session: Sizing Markets & Projecting Budgets

Love often blinds novice entrepreneurs.  They become enamored with their technology or business model almost to a fault.  There’s nothing wrong with that per se.  Passion is an important component in launching a startup.  However, if founders ignore the financial model that accompanies the business model, their lunch will be more of a sad fizzle.

Michael Lopez will help you add financial viability to your startup story.  When you submit your innovation grant summary, you’ll need to include those aspects that will be most relevant to potential investors – even if fundraising is a long way off. Michael will help you gain an understanding how to build a credible story through numbers.
