How to Raise Pre-Seed/Seed Startup Funds: Full Day Workshop, Austin, TX

December 1 @ 08:45 - 17:15 CST

Learn to build a fundable startup and raise Pre-Seed/Seed funding intelligently!

Less than 1% of startup pitches result in funding. While most entrepreneurs over-emphasize pitch decks, smart founders focus on fundability. Fundable companies raise funds faster, easier, at higher valuations and with better terms.

Successful founders follow a proven five-step Prepare, Plan, Execute, Sell, and Close (PPESC) process to efficiently raise Pre-seed and Seed funds for their early-stage startup.

This full-day class dives into important keys to launch a startup, build momentum, and raise early-stage funds, including:

  1. Startup roadmap & blueprint
  2. Startup formation & equity (cap tables, etc.)
  3. Funding strategy
  4. Inflection points and funding milestones
  5. Product/market fit and idea validation (Lean Startup principles)
  6. Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and go-to-market
  7. Customer sales and investor fundraising
  8. Financial models and projections
  9. How to crack the code on startup talent
  10. Building a pitch deck
  11. Coaching on pitch delivery
  12. Navigating the fundraise (engaging investors, term sheets, etc.)

Attendees will learn the basic PPESC process to effectively build a fundable startup and then close Pre-Seed and Seed funding.
