Event description
Raising VC Funding is not easy and is time-consuming. Learn how VCs look at your business plans.

About this Event

If your startup is growing, at some point you will likely be seeking venture capital. Unlike angel investors, who typically write checks between $10,000 to $100,000, VCs can write multi-million dollar checks. This means that VCs support startup growth from seed to much later stages. Because VCs deploy large amounts of capital and expect significant returns, the process of raising money from these so called institutional investors is far from trivial.

At the end of the workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Recognise the vital information investors are looking for;
  • Prepare the pitch deck as a compelling story;
  • Use of many public speaking techniques to wow investors.

Suitable for:

  • Founders
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Business Leaders
