Who is it for?
Entrepreneurs at all stages — whether you’re about to launch your business or have an established business and need to create or refine your pitch deck.
This is not just a webinar presentation. We plan this as an interactive workshop with the speaker available for live questions and answers (“Q&A”) throughout, to help you figure things out while the content is fresh in your mind. We’ll also give you road-tested tips for engaging stakeholders that have evolved over a decade and been validated by hundreds of investors.
By the end of this workshop, you’ll have a proven system for creating your own compelling pitch!
Our Expert Speaker
Grace Rodriguez knows what it’s like to be on both sides of the funding fence. As an entrepreneur and non-profit leader, she has helped raise funds for her own ventures, securing capital from major stakeholders, angel investors, bankers, family and friends, and even government and non-profit grants.
As a frequent startup mentor, advisor, and pitch competition judge for accelerators and incubators including MassChallenge, Texas Medical Center Innovation Institute, Capital Factory, WeWork Labs, and Rice University’s Liu Idea Lab for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Grace reviews hundreds of pitch decks a year. Through this experience and her time at DFJ Mercury (now “Mercury Fund”), she has learned what venture capitalists and angel investors look for, with access to over 1,000 investors in a variety of industries. Grace has developed a keen understanding on why so many businesses fail to secure the funding they need in the start-up and growth phases, and which approaches to raising capital really work. She is keen to share with you what happens behind the scenes when investors evaluate and discuss deals!
