Startup Grind Bournemouth – Reem Mobassaleh Wyndham: What Investors Look For

14th November 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

£10 – £15

So you have a great business idea, maybe you have built a great product – but you need to raise capital. Proving that customers will actually buy your product will be a sure-fire route to investment… right?

Founders are understandably focused on their product and market, but this can sometimes be at the expense of concentrating on the dynamics of the founding team – a frequently overlooked and critical component of their business.

Having a great product simply isn’t enough to convince reputable investors, who often invest primarily in the people behind the business. In this interactive fireside chat, Reem Mobassaleh Wyndham, Investment Lead at Accelerated Digital Ventures, will share insights into:

What drives investment decisions
The dynamics of a successful founding team
How to build a team around an idea
