Financing Your Start-Up Business

Posted in: Alumni Career Services- Jan 27, 2011 Comments Off on Financing Your Start-Up Business

Online webinar
Tuesday, January 25, 2011, 12:30 – 1:30pm

In today’s economic environment, financing a start-up business is more challenging than ever. There are a wide variety of options to consider — personal resources, friends/family, angel investors, and government programs — and each requires a fundamentally different approach and level of preparation. You’ll need much more than just a solid business plan. This webinar will help prepare for each of these conversations or application processes and provide several specific insights and case studies based upon the presenter’s experience working with a wide variety of small business owners.

Keith Kohler (F ’88) is a finance and strategy consultant whose passion is assisting the small business owner to both improve operational results and profitability as well as to find the right financing solutions for growth. He has broad and deep personal and strategic experience in the consumer products and food/manufacturing industries, particularly in the natural, organic, and gluten-free sectors, but has found that his services, process, and lessons are applicable for any type of business — from start-up to well-established.

Keith earned his MBA in Finance from the Wharton School and a MA in Brazilian/Latin American Studies from the University of Pennsylvania, and also received his Bachelor’s in Foreign Service cum laude from Georgetown University.

Posted in: Alumni Career Services- Jan 27, 2011 Comments Off on Successful Negotiating for Successful Women

Online webinar
Tuesday, February 15, 2011, 12:30 – 1:30pm

Negotiating with success is important for all aspects of life. Successful negotiating can get you the right salary, promotion or business deal. It is also vital in buying and selling a house or working on a local community group. Women have been historically treated differently in negotiations and understanding these differences will help you best reach your goals. This class explores the differences in negotiating style and perceptions for women. It also highlights key tactics and skills for successful negotiations.

We will discuss: how to work with and around the traits usually attributed to women, how to prepare for an agreement to ensure that you are in control of any negotiation, and how to recognize and avoid the most common pitfalls in negotiations
