General information

How to convince investors without generating revenue?

You are not generating revenue with your company but you would like to find an investor to cover the initial losses and to start generating revenue. But at the same time, the investor only wants to get involved with your company if you are already generating revenue. This situation is called Catch 22 – the chicken or the egg problem. What is the best way to deal with this situation? Experts will share their experiences during Fund the Future on April 9.

Are you experiencing this particular problem, than you find yourself in a Catch 22 situation: it’s a circular reasoning which it is hard to escape from. Many entrepreneurs share this similar problem. During Fund the Future, we will find out together how you can get yourself out of this situation and experts will share their knowledge about convincing investors without generating (much) revenue.

Final Investor Readiness Bootcamp

Besides sharing knowledge, Fund the Future is also the final day of the Investor Readiness Bootcamp. Multiple startups have been prepared during this bootcamp to work on a successful approach towards investors. Some of these startups are going to pitch their business case as a final pitch for the bootcamp during Fund the Future.
