Entrepreneur in Residence

by | May 24, 2019 | News | 0 comments

It’s no secret that it’s become harder to raise capital to grow your business. Your product or service has to be unique and you have be able to sell your story. These are only two factors that matter in the growth of your business and there are many more you need to consider when approaching investors.

A challenge that most business owners face is the lack of cash flow and how to steer through the uncertainty.

How do you scale your business and raise capital to get to the next step? What should you be looking for when trying to find a great co-founder for your business?

These are questions that are common among business owners, start-ups and entrepreneurs. Sometimes it helps to talk to an expert to get more clarity around your business.

We love to see our CoWork Me members go from one stage to the other and do what we can to support their business journey. We have invited Mike Boorn Pleener as our Entrepreneur in Residence. On two occasions our members can come and ask him questions around their business.
