Raising Startup Funds: Training Class + Live Investor Pitches

June 19 @ 19:30 - 23:00 CDT

A live, in-person training on How to Find & Pitch Startup Investors. Apply to pitch to a panel of angel investors! Watch 3 founders pitch!


Most founders need to raise money to fund their startup. But many founders fail to raise funds because they either:

  • Can’t get investors to respond to their outreach, and/or
  • Their pitch fails to tell a story about a de-risked startup.

Many founders resort to a “spray and pray” approach to reach out to investors. But spamming lots of investors rarely works. Instead, learn how to align your outreach with the Startup Investor Pitch Lifecycle. We’ll quickly show how to connect with an investor, nurture a relationship, and make the right type of ask at the right time to maximize the chances of a response.

And once an investor responds, founders need to deliver a story about a de-risked startup that is:

  • Clear
  • Concise
  • Comprehensive
  • Catchy
  • Compelling

Join us for this live, in-person training class and investor pitch event. Network with other founders while enjoying a light dinner. Meet startup advisors and investors. Watch other founders pitch a panel of investors and learn from the feedback given.

This event has 2 types of tickets:

  • General admission tickets ($15-$35 each, depending on how early you buy your ticket). These tickets allow you to attend the event, participate as an audience member, and observe the 3 founders pitching the investors.
  • Audtion tickets ($160 per startup). We offer up to 6 tickets to audition to pitch to the investor panel. These tickets allow you to attend the advance training class and coaching sessions (more details below) to help you better prepare and deliver your pitch. The top 3 startups auditioning will be selected to pitch at the live event.

If you want to APPLY TO BE ONE OF THE THREE finalists who will be selected to pitch our panel of investors, then sign up for one of six pitch audition tickets. Founders who sign up for the pitch ticket will get:

  • A private 1-hour pitch preparation class held on Monday, June 10, 2024 at 2pm-3pm. We want to help founders know how to deliver a great investor pitch.
  • A 1-on-1 coaching session with Sam Wong, startup coach and investor to practice delivering your pitch. This coaching session is your audition to pitch the investors. We will also help prepare you to deliver the best pitch you can. Auditions must be scheduled Tue., June 11 through Fri., June 14.
  • After the auditions are completed, we’ll select 3 finalists to pitch at the live event on Wed., June 19. Every applicant have at least a 50% chance of being selected to pitch the investor panel.
  • Three free passes to the live event on Wed., June 19. Note that all 6 applicants who purchase a pitch ticket will get these three free passes, regardless of whether or not your startup is selected to pitch to the investors live.

Note: founders selected to pitch the investors must do so in person. The practice pitches and coaching will be done over Zoom, but the live pitches must be done in real life.

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.
