Raising Funds for Business Training / Seminar / Workshop

Thinking behind this programme:

Let us start asking SMEs following questions:

1. Have you been looking to raise capital either equity or debt to grow and expand your business.

2. Do you feel raising debt capital from banking sector (generally being collateralized) is a significant challenge. Alternative sources of debt are exorbitantly expensive.

3. Do you feel alternative source of equity capital from Private sources (Private Equity and Venture Capital) is emerging fast in the country. But, you dont know how this whole stuff works.

4. Do you feel SME platforms of Bombay Stock Exchange and National Stock Exchange may help you raise capital from public in a much more simplified manner (some SMEs have already raised capital from these platforms) but you dont know how does it work.

If answer to all the above questions is BIG YES!, you must attend this programme. This Programme would provide solution to the SME companies struggling with above questions through highlighting how SME companies can access equity capital from Private sources (Private Equity/Venture Capital) and/or from public (Initial Public Issue – IPOs) through recently launched Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) platforms of Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and National Stock Exchange (NSE).

Objective of the Raising Funds Training:

Last several months have been tough for the corporates. On one hand, pressures from general decrease in demand for various products and services, competitive landscape resulting in squeezing profit margins and on the other hand, scarcity of available resources. Availability of credit has become challenge and if the same is available, cost is exorbitantly high.

Interestingly, in this environment, an alternative source of fund called Private Equity created its own space. Today, almost 300 Venture Capital/Private Equity (VC/PE) firms operate in the country with different focuses and operational dynamics. These firms have made significant contribution towards growth of corporates by making the capital available.

Further, with development of SME platforms by Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and National Stock Exchange (NSE), it is possible now for SMEs to access equity capital from public in a quite simplistic manner and get listed on the stock exchanges. Public issues now can be done by SMEs to raise very small capital (say around Rs. 5 Cr.); No prior track record is required for the IPO; No offer document to go to SEBI for approval; And, there is guarantee for 100% subscription of the issue as the issue gets fully underwritten by the investment/merchant banker etc.

Accordingly, this programme is conceptualized to provide a pragmatic perspective on various aspects of accessing equity capital from Private sources and/or public through SME platforms of BSE and NSE. This programme is the product of faculty’s real life experience of working with corporates on their fund raising initiatives.
