The vast majority of startups never get the opportunity to pitch their idea to potential investors, so when you do get the chance you shouldn't throw it away by talking about the wrong things. So if you've not successfully raised venture capital before, attending this workshop is a must, to give you critical insights into what information VCs and Angels are looking for, and how they want it presented.
Topics covered in this interactive workshop include:
- Is my idea/business fundable?
- What VCs and Angels look for from a Funding Pitch
- Valuations & who gets what percent?
- The successful funding flow from idea to A round
- Creating the Killer Funding Pitch for YOUR startup
