How to Raise Capital…Legally @ AWEEc
Sep 18 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

To start or expand a business, you need capital.  Raising capital, however, is one of the most difficult challenges that a company can undertake.  In the current economy, investors at all levels have become increasingly risk adverse, resulting in even greater competition for their limited investment dollars.  And heightened regulatory scrutiny by the SEC means that compliance with securities laws has never been more important.   Learn what an entrepreneur or business owner must do to successfully navigate the process.

Topics for this seminar will include:

– Determining a company’s capital requirements
– Identifying those who can satisfy those requirements
– Defining the terms of the equity offering
– Understanding what it means to have investors
– Complying with federal and state securities laws
– How the JOBS Act will change the rules of the game with crowdfunding
– Strategies for increasing a company’s chance of success

Strategic Planning for Business Success @ AWEEc
Sep 20 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
What is the purpose of a business?

business_icon.jpgAccording to management theorist Peter Drucker, the purpose of a business is to create a customer, which can lead to the development of a market and, subsequently, a business.

Consequently, business value and owner wealth are a function of the extent to which management can effectively and consistently achieve customer satisfaction. In order to realize these objectives, management must devise a business strategy.


There are four standard business strategies that have proven viability:

  • Cost Leadership
  • Differentiation
  • Focus and Integration
  • Blue Ocean Strategy

The guiding principle of each of these strategies is to satisfy the customer by beating the competition.

Conversely, Blue Ocean Strategy eliminates the competitive focus in the creation of customer value.


Business strategy is the raison d’etre of the strategic planning process.

Without an effective business strategy, there is minimal opportunity to create a sustainable, valuable enterprise that generates wealth for its owners.

What’s your business’s strategy? You want to attend this seminar!
