Outdoor Investment Idol – Equity Judges Debate What’s Cool to Invest In and Why

Recorded, On Demand


Outdoor industry companies are in a cool business, but how does that translate to investors in today’s uncertain marketplace? In this session you’ll learn about how to present your company to private equity investors for the best shot at “yes.”  Learn what information you need to include in order to gain investor interest (and what to leave out), what private investors are looking for, where the red flags are and how much financial histories matter versus forward-looking potential. Come listen-in on money mover arguments about who to fund and why – an entertaining and informative way to learn the right risks to take.
