Beyond Shark Tank: Real-World Advice from seasoned Investors

October 12, 2021 @ 5:30 pm

About this event

Real Life Entrepreneurship is DEEPER than a Shark Tank

The world of entrepreneurship has changed with the images and concepts from the tv show Shark Tank.

First time entrepreneurs and investors don’t actually go on a blind date and make a deal for a $100,000 plus investment in 15 minutes. In fact, this process can take 3 months or longer in conservative markets.

Entrepreneurs really need to know and live the terms of legal structures, angel investing and venture capital BEFORE they meet investors or they will be eaten alive by the sharks who maybe aren’t angels.

If entrepreneurs do the right preparation BEFORE the investor meeting, they can find a real partner in growing their startup into a successful exit instead of an adversarial relationship that could lead to a quick failure and sleepless nights with stress.

Our next event has two experienced investors who are eager to share the terms and insights to prepare Myrtle Beach entrepreneurs to meet with future investors.

Tim McLoughlin – Tim is one of the brightest young investors in the southeast as part of CoFounders Capital based in Cary, NC. CoFounders is often listed as one of the top two most active venture capital funds in North Carolina. Tim is VERY connected in the ecosystems throughout the southeast.

David Mendez – David is part of Good Growth Capital in Charleston SC. David is very active in the Charleston ecosystem as he is a past speaker at DigSouth. Good Growth Capital (GGC) is an early stage venture capital firm known for its exceptional expertise in finding, cultivating and assessing complex science and technology start-ups.
