Dragana Mendel, President at ANAGARD, LLC helps entrepreneurs raise money for their new business as they navigate different financial channels the most appropriate for their personal situation. Because of her expertise, she has been invited by EntreDot to be on “Conquering Financing” panel and talk to entrepreneurs in the audience what are different options they can use to finance their startup. Bootstrapping from personal savings is the obvious choice for everyone, but most people don’t have undepletable amount of money needed to capitalize operations before the company is financially self-sustainable. Because of that, entrepreneurs and startup founders have to evaluate all available channels and determine which ones are the most appropriate for their business model. The financial channels range from government grants, crowdfunding trough rewards and donations, equity crowdfunding, angel investing, loans and debts, to invitational venture capital investing.
