After deciding that you want to lead a company as a young CEO, you’ll need to find funding. Hear from searchers who've taken different approaches to financing - from tapping traditional investors, accelerators, banks and more - to make their dream a reality.
Learn from searchers who've successfully navigated the ambiguous process known as “search.” We dive into the specifics of how they ran their operation and how each tactic took them one step closer to becoming a CEO.
