Financial Model Seminar

August 28, 2019

When it comes to growing a business, healthy cash flow is integral to success. If you’re looking for ways to ensure your product sells while also making sure you’re able to pay your bills, consider attending the Greater Des Moines Partnership’s Financial Model Seminar, a half-day seminar to engage the small business community in Greater Des Moines (DSM). For startup and small business owners, it’s one more way to hear strong solutions for long-term success.

What to Expect

For startups bringing a new product to market, having a financial model that represents your company’s expected success is critical. The Financial Model Seminar will help you push past your passion to design business strategies, as well as learn how to determine the amount of capital you will need and when your company will become profitable.

In addition, this seminar will teach you what you need to know to present your financial models to investors or stakeholders with confidence. According to the Small Business Administration, acquiring venture capital from investors has a longer investment horizon than traditional financing.

Building upon the success of the Raising Capital Seminar, this is an in-depth session that will put you on the right track to complete your financial model

How to Attend

The Financial Model Seminar will take place from 1-4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 17 at the BrownWinick Law Firm. Admission is $20. Learn more about the seminar or contact Mike for more information.
