About this Program

About This Program

There is a lot more to fundraising than preparing a pitch deck and connecting to the right set of investors! Entrepreneurs are expected to build the right team, explain their expansion strategy with numbers, and provide a valuation number.

The Venture Capital Bootcamp 2.0 is a special edition program designed to assist entrepreneurs with the following:

1. Creating the right ESOP policy to recruit top talent

2. Determining startup valuation to gain an edge in investor negotiations

3. Understanding convertible investment instruments to close the deal

4. Building financial projections from scratch and arriving at the funding ask

5. Fostering connects with angels, venture capital funds, entrepreneurs, and investment bankers

We have designed this 4-day boot camp to assist entrepreneurs in actualizing key milestones in the fundraising process. Through interactive live workshops, masterclasses, discussions, and case studies, entrepreneurs will navigate the complexities of fundraising and walk away with a concrete plan for closing their first funding round.
