On October 17, 2012, the ESD Alliance (formerly EDAC) hosted the second in a series of conversations exploring concepts and best practices for emerging companies. In this conversation, serially successful entrepreneurs shared their funding strategies and gave specific examples of what worked for them. Equally important, the speakers discussed the efficient and effective use of cash in a start-up, and frameworks for appropriate spending.
