Meet an Investor – August Fern (ClimateTech VC)

June 18 @ 13:00 - 13:30 CDT

Connect with an investor to understand their ideal startup profile, resulting in more successful fundraising.

Entrepreneurs looking to raise startup funds often face two problems:

  • Very few investors in their network of contacts
  • A poor understanding of what motivates the investor to write a check

Join us for a quick fireside chat with a startup investor where we help founders tackle these two issues. In this 30-minute webinar, Sam Wong sits down with an investor to discuss their investment philosophy and talk through a wide range of startup topics, from current investment trends to past successes and failures with other startups. We’ll wrap with a brief audience Q&A.

In this session, we’ll speak with August Fern, ClimateTech Venture Capitalist & Family Office.

Fundable Startups provides coaching, training, and tools that helps founders build healthy, fundable companies. As a published author and a CEO, CTO or Tech VP of 5 startups with 3 exits, Sam Wong leads Fundable Startups in creating premium, deep-dive, visual training and tools to help founders with great execution.
