Webinar to explain entrepreneur/investor relationship

As part of National Entrepreneurship Week, the Robert C. Byrd Institute (RCBI) at Marshall University is joining with the Appalachian Investors Alliance (AIA) to present “Meet the Investors,” a free webinar Feb. 16 at 2 p.m. to help entrepreneurs and small business owners better understand how to attract investment in their ideas or businesses.

AIA is a non-profit educational foundation working to revitalize the region’s economy by facilitating community-based, self-reinforcing economic and workforce development through entrepreneur readiness.

Representatives from AIA will explain where to find potential investors and offer advice on how to develop a bulletproof plan that attracts the attention of investors. They also will share information about what investors want from you and what control they have over your idea and the direction of your business. Finally, they will explain why investors are not out to steal your idea and ways you can protect yourself from intellectual property theft. Participants also will get the chance to ask questions.

Register for the interactive webinar.
