    TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1 AT 3:00 PM (EDT)

    Are you concerned with giving away too much equity to finance your start up? Do you know all the start up funding options available?

    This panel will focus on getting initial money from non-traditional sources when VCs and angels will not help, and friends and family will stress you out.

    Investors want to see something before they invest. Yet it takes money to make your company into something to interest investors. It is a catch-22. This panel offers techniques to show you how to break out of that conundrum - to take your company from nothing to something, and to do so without VC or angel funding. These questions and more will be discussed and answered in this Webinar.
