Fund-Raising: Are you looking to raise capital, but not sure where to start?- Ho Chi Minh City, Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers - Ho Chi Minh City, Thứ hai, 28. Tháng mười 2019

When I started my own company, I was too afraid to break out from my family funds. I had a million reasons why I could not raise capital. Thoughts like, “No one would be interested;” or “They are going to tell me I am crazy;” or “I don’t know where to start” filled my head. When I came to China, I found myself raising capital for other peoples companies and realized that the process, although not easy at times, is definitely worth the effort. Not only will your company start on the right foot (that is to say, funded), but also your business plan and story will crystalize.  

Approach: My approach to fund-raising is not just about knowing the right people (although that is definitely an important part), it is about understanding the process; knowing the questions that will be asked; perfecting the story or pitch, identifying the interested investors; creating the strategy; building the relationship; and lastly understanding the pros and cons to the term sheets you will receive.  

Results: Although I would hardly call myself an expert, I have been able to either sell or raise capital for over $550 million dollars’ worth of assets.
