sf international womenAs part of a unique alliance of international chambers, business associations and organizations in San Francisco, SACC-SF/SV is a proud member of the SF International Women Entrepreneurs Forum. The Forum delivers a platform for diverse international organizations to collaborate and share resources and give visibility to various projects and initiatives, start-ups and businesses directed to or run by women.

On October 2, the Forum will host another event: “Successfully Financing Your Big Idea,” and has put together an outstanding panel of advisors, entrepreneurs and investors to share their insights on how to achieve success.

“When it comes to funding, everyone agrees the Bay Area is the place to be. Yet, while the ranks of women entrepreneurs continue to grow in this area, less than 10% of startups led by women successfully receive any VC funding.”

Topics Covered Will Include:

  • Identifying the best funding option for your company
  • Targeting VCs and Angels
  • How to successfully work your network
  • Tapping into the psychology of investors
  • Preparing for your pitch
  • How to keep going until you hear a “yes!”
  • What next??
  • And more!
