Is it because you have to write a business plan and you just don't know how? Or because you have to "pitch" it to investors and so many creatives don't like to "brag?"
If you're in or around New York on September 10, check out this micro-conference hosted by the DIY Business Association:
Get Funding ASAP! (Or Maybe Not Just Yet)
- When: Saturday, September 10, 3–6 p.m.
- Where: Loosecubes office loft space, 20 Jay Street, suite 904, Brooklyn, New York
- Tickets: Early Bird deadline is Thurs. Sept 1
Do you need money to jumpstart your business, hire employees and independent contractors, rent work space, or take things up a notch? Save hours (or even months) of research for business funding options with expert advice and insights about a variety of funding options. With so many routes to take, how do you know which one (and at which point) is best for you?
Successful entrepreneurs (including those who distribute funds to other entrepreneurs) share their stories and the pros and cons of small-business loans, credit cards, venture-capitalist funding, day jobs, slow growth, donations, etc. (Cocktails and a networking DIYTogether Incubator Group are included in the ticket price.)
