Event details

Access to capital in times of crisis - Free Online Interactive Discussion by I Have Learned Academy in Collaboration with the German Foundation: KAS -Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Lebanon office

The talk will cover the different phases that any company or institution will have to go through for a successful fund raising journey.

These phases include building a transformation plan and financial model, mapping and reaching out to potential investors and negotiating a win-win funding agreement. We will share the key templates used in this journey and the case studies closed in Lebanon and the region over the past 4 years.

Financial sustainability is at the core of any organisation... grasping all dimensions of this is crucial!
