How do startups actually get funded? We’ll take you through everything you could possibly want to know, from what funding options are available, to finding investors, and crafting the perfect pitch.

PHASE I Structure Your Fundraise From bootstrapping, to debt, to equity, we’re breaking down each of the most commonly-sourced types of funding so we can determine which makes the most sense for our raise. PHASE II Investor Selection All investors are not created equal. Before we start reaching out, it’s going to be crucial to learn how to target investors whose preferences align with our particular raise. PHASE III Craft Your Pitch Distilling down the most compelling aspects of our business into a super concise, persuasive pitch is something Founders often struggle to get right. We’re going to learn what it takes to nail this. PHASE IV Investor Outreach Carpet bombing dozens of investors with cold emails never works. We’re going to see the right way to ignite investor conversations by understanding who to reach out to first, how to reach out to them, and what key information we should (and shouldn’t) provide.
