Learn from an angel investor and gain the tools you need to develop your idea, build a team, formulate a strategy, and obtain funding 

There are outstanding resources available to help entrepreneurs get their ideas off the ground --from accelerators and incubators to the big consulting firms on Page Mill Road. 

If you are fortunate enough to have the resources to hire one of these consulting firms, or are able to get into one of these accelerators or incubators, you may be on your way.

However, not everyone has the resources they need to hire a pricey consulting firm.  And not everyone can get accepted into highly competitive programs like Y-Combinator.

How does one level the playing field?



This workshop is geared to provide the  insight and knowledge  a budding entrepreneur needs to get on track for success and get funding.

This overview will provide the fundamental building blocks for creating and launching an idea, along with a basic understanding of the startup and product realization processes and lifecycle. After this workshop you will understand the startup roadmap, how to develop and build a team, how to develop your strategy, and how to get others interested in your idea.


You will gain a fundamental understanding of funding options, their impact and how to determine which one is right for you.  You will have an understanding of the various funding options available to you, their pros and cons, and what you need to develop a successful strategy to fund your idea.

Finally, you will be equipped with the tools and understanding to create the key documents required to obtain funding. Learn how to avoid the common mistakes that most startups make in this crucial step. After this workshop you will know how to develop a compelling executive summary and investor presentation that will inform and help persuade investors to fund your startup.
