In this hands on workshop, Shelli Trung will talk about how to go through the process of raising your round of startup capital including where to find investors and nailing your pitch deck.
For most of us, thinking like an investor does not come naturally. There’s more to pitching to an investor than being clear and concise. It requires you to ‘think’ like an investor and understand how investors assess ‘risk’ and derive ‘value’.
Come along and get inside the mind of what an investor looks for in their startup investments, and learn how to speak their language.
No preparation is needed for this workshop. However, if any founders already have an investor pitch deck or cold approach emails they are happy to share with the class, please feel free to bring these along.
