Women's Power Networking Breakfast: How To Attract Investors

When: December 3, 2015
Where: 120-55 Queens Blvd.
Room 200
Kew Gardens, NY 11424
Time: 8:30am to 10:30am
Cost: Free

Join us for the last Women's Power Networking Breakfast of 2015 featuring free food, the chance to make connections with your fellow entrepreneurs, and the chance to meet with QEDC staff. This month's topic will be how to get investments.

Learning Points

1.       Learn the strategies that successfully funded entrepreneurs use to find ideal investors. (Hint hint: it's not as hard as you think.)

2.       Discover the #1 mistake you're making that prevents investors from wanting to take the next step. (Changing this one thing will not only increase your likelihood of getting funded, but it'll save you time and reduce your anxiety.)

3.       Get Jennifer's proven, three-step approach to determining if an investor is a good fit versus those who will waste your time.

About the Presentation

Is business growing but everything is on pause because you don't have the money you need to buy inventory and you feel like you are losing traction with accounts that are interested? Take a minute and imagine what your life would look like if you could find investors to fund and help you grow your business. What would it look like if you could set a goal like "increase sales by 200% in 2016" or "cut inventory costs in half by February" and actually meet that goal on time and on budget?

If you can't even imagine what it would be like to know how to reach, find, talk to and/or collaborate with investors that are as excited about your business as you are, here are a few hints to give you an idea. You would:

1.       Have help to reach your goals faster and smarter!

2.       Be exponentially more profitable.

3.       No longer be fighting trying to do it all alone.

4.       Stop feeling like you are always behind the 8-ball!

5.       Have trusted partners that give you sound advice and access to contacts you never thought you could reach!

6.       Have more time to expand your business and land new accounts.

7.       Move your business forward by leaps and bounds instead of baby steps.

So -- how do you find these investors? Jennifer Love, founder of Entrepreneurist and creator of "Get Funded Now! The Master Course," has the answer which she'll be sharing on November 10, 2015 during her new FREE webinar training: "Top 10 Ways to FIND INVESTORS - who are as excited about your business as you are (and you don't need a large network to access them)."

 

Bio

Jennifer Love is the CEO of Entrepreneurist – an entrepreneurial advisory and education company. A serial entrepreneur with over 15+ years experience building and working with consumer (CPG) brands, Jennifer is an asset to the growth of the brands and leaders she advises.

In October 2015, Jennifer helped one of the brands she advises get funded on Shark Tank successfully closing out a $1.1M funding round. In July 2014, the Small Business Digest featured Jennifer's 'Sweet Success' on the cover of the magazine. On a given day, Jennifer may be found serving as a judge for events like Startup Weekend, on stage speaking to a variety of audiences, advising a client behind the scenes of Biz Fix with Marcus Lemonis, or preparing and introducing clients to investors.

A nationally-acclaimed mentor to the 5000+ entrepreneurs in the NEXT Accelerator community of New Hope Media and to a community of entrepreneurs at AccelFoods and Metabrand, Jennifer helps these product entrepreneurs position their businesses for long-term, sustainable growth.

Under Jennifer's leadership as a co-founder and former CEO, NibMor, went from a kitchen concept to an award-winning wholesale chocolate company, with its products distributed in thousands of locations within five years. Landing prominent accounts such as Virgin Airlines, Whole Foods, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Bloomingdales, NibMor's impressive growth was acknowledged by The Wall Street Journal and found its way onto two of Oprah's famed lists. NibMor's drinking chocolate was also featured in Clean Eating Magazine as the best beverage of the year in 2012.

Having worked with leaders of Fortune 200 companies such as Roche to celebrities like Ron Perlman, she is beloved by clients for delivering results – one said, "With Jennifer, the only possible outcome is success." Collectively, Jennifer has raised, participated in, or advised in the raising of over $100 million for her and her clients' ventures. She is an advisor or board member to many companies and organizations.

She is a graduate of the California School of Professional Psychology with a Master's in Organizational Behavior, of Millersville University with a Bachelor's in Psychology, and also of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
