Session 4: Company Analysis Workshop with Randall Reade of Washington, DC ArchAngels

← Back to Schedule

What do investors look for when they see a pitch? And how do they analyze a company to determine if it is investment worthy? Join us for a special workshop that will teach you the major elements that investors ask themselves about a company. We will have two real companies seeking funding that will pitch, and the audience will apply what they learned and determine whether the companies are investment worthy.
