We invite you to join Fieldfisher & Strategy Dynamics for an interactive session discussing business models suited to start-ups and early stage companies.
'Show me your business model' is a common demand from investors - but what exactly is a business model? Most sources suggest either qualitative descriptions or guesses at top-level financials. But a living, quantified business model of your business is entirely possible - in fact easier and more useful than most spreadsheet models. 
This session will show examples of real models that early-stage companies have used to build confidence between their teams and their investors - and actually raise finance! Bring a tablet or large phone if you want to explore one of these models yourself. 
We will also explain how these models are being used to steer the week-to-week decision-making in early-stage businesses. 

Fieldfisher is a European law firm with offices in London, Manchester, Brussels, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Munich, Paris, Shanghai and Silicon Valley. We work with many founders, providing a one-stop service for early stage IP-rich businesses
