About This Program
Raising the first round of capital is a critical milestone for all early-stage startups. There are several steps in the fundraising process, such as creating a business plan, identifying investors, pitching, negotiating valuation, finalizing term sheet, due diligence, and so on. Entrepreneurs must understand the technicalities of the fundraising process to develop a strong strategy.
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.
