Whether a business is seeking to secure capital from private investors or to tap the public markets, taking on investment capital requires organizational structures and approaches that render a comprehensive and detailed view of the business.
To be ready for such scrutiny, business leaders must first get their “houses in order” by making certain that the firm’s auditors are being correctly managed, the firm’s board is properly engaged, and the executive team is intact. Nevertheless, many firms seldom leave enough time to accomplish all of what needs to get done to attract and accommodate investors.
Professor Mikhail Pevzner of GMU’s School of Management has agreed to facilitate a discussion that exposes an “investor-ready” multiyear timeline dotted with organizational “to-dos” that must be completed by a firm prior to engaging and accommodating outside investors.
• Structuring boards to accommodate the investor’s view
• Lending partners and disclosure: What banks require
• How to better manage auditors
It is our intent and hope for 2012 that together, through collaboration and peer-to-peer exchange, we can continue to move our respective business and economic climates forward on a sustainable path of profitable growth. By creating a more efficient and effective community platform where finance leaders can gather and share, we will continue to help the finance leaders of today and tomorrow steer us in the right direction.
Broad theme of this Discussion
What can firms do to organize their companies so that they are best positioned to obtain capital?
Specifically, what can a middle market company do today to smoothly access capital markets tomorrow?
