Bring me to the money!

Or: How do I finance my startup?

Abstract

After founding your company, you will face the challenge of financing your startup. But nowadays the bank isn’t the easiest nor the best way to get some money. So the questions are: Which alternative sources are available? What does it mean for a company to on-board a Business Angel and how does crowdfunding/-investing work? What is a venture capital company and should I go for public funds? In this talk you’ll get some insights into the topic of alternative corporate financing and how you could address these sources.
