Raising Capital with Confidence

Link visible for attendees

Raising capital is hard. As an early-stage founder, investors are evaluating whether they believe you are the right person to build a team and execute on the plan you are presenting to them. The more confidence you can instill in your investors, the more likely it may be that they write you a check. And, your confidence as a founder will be evident to your investors, if you are prepared.

Join Jeff Erickson from Forecastr and Will Buckstaff from Carta, for a workshop about key things you need to do to prepare to raise a funding round with confidence.

In this workshop we cover the following:
❖ Researching your potential investors
❖ The importance of a financial model and knowing your numbers
❖ What investors learn about you and your company from your cap table
❖ Preparing to pitch like a pro
❖ Putting it all together to impress your investors

Forecastr provides a software platform to help early-stage startups easily create, track and manage their financial projections in preparation for raising capital.
