Inner Workings of Funding Entities - Workshop

Online event

You can register for this workshop at https://rzp.io/l/SSWS If you know how something works you are better prepared to deal with it. To many founders; investment funds, angel networks, etc. are black boxes. Their pitch deck goes in then they wait and get an answer. They have no idea what went on within and how the answer was arrived at. What were the factors that played a role? What was considered? Questions to these answers actually reside in how the fund/entity has been structured. What their internal requirements are and what are the factors that can contribute to a no-go. There are several things apart from the merit of the business that can play a role in decision making. We will lift the veil off the inner working of funding entities and what goes on within to spit the answer out. We will decode all of these questions for you. How they are setup? How they make decisions? What are their priorities? How do they succeed? What do you need to keep in mind to successfully fundraise? This is going to be one with a lot of disclosures. You don’t want to miss this one!

Digital Demo Day 2020 - Global by Startups Club

For the past 7 years, we at Startups Club have been putting together the Demo Day in order to enable the connect between startups, entrepreneurs and investors. Over the years we have seen several successful startups come through the Demo Day. While we have conducted the event across various cities in the past, we had restricted the Demo Day to Bangalore alone during the past couple of years. This year has been a tough one for everyone and while distancing is a theme at the same time coming closer together and working more collaboratively has never been more important. This has prompted us to move Demo Day online and bring the global eco-system together at Demo Day 2020. If you plan to pitch to investors across the world at the Demo Day, pick up your Pitch Pass (Pitch your startup) / Delegation Pass (Attendee) Now! We will take you through the evaluation process soon after. About Digital Demo Day For 7 years, Demo Day has been an offline event that has brought together the eco-system.

Also what is best for the entrepreneurs and the eco-system.
