Session 1: Keys to Getting Funded

Are you an early stage entrepreneur looking for funding? Come learn how to tackle some of the key areas that may help you in your fund raising!

  • Do you have a winning product?
  • How to identify your competitive edge?
  • How to size your market appropriately?
  • What if you don’t have a strong core team?

Session 2: The Art of Fund Raising

Think going from idea into product is tough? Wait until you start raising some dough! Fundraising is a make-or-break step for most entrepreneurs, and it’s often more art than science.

  • What matters in your presentation?
  • How to get a meeting with investors? (if you don't know any)
