If you are looking to expand your brand, start a bar or restaurant, or even think about how to look at financing differently, this is a must-attend session for you. Hear from perspectives of those who invest and those who have had seven-figure raises on what works and what can be improved upon. Most operators believe the only way to go about securing capital is going into debt via loans, credit cards, or personal savings. There is another way. Learn about the benefits of equity financing, explains what is needed to get investors on board with your restaurant, including why they should be interested in investing, and provide the key information on how to find funding for restaurant entrepreneurs.
