The Funding Workshop

Funding Workshop 

July 9-10, 2019

Presented by

The knowledge you need to close funding.

A carefully curated lineup of talks, interactive discussions and hard-won lessons on finding product-market fit, growing the organization, and creating the right processes and systems to scale your business. This 2 day event culminates in the opportunity to pitch to a room of VC’s eager to invest in the next great idea.

Space is limited to qualified applicants.

This workshop is for:

– Pre-series-A startups
– Closed early funding and proven the product—but need to transition to mainstream market acceptance and growth
– Have raised or are raising a seed round
– May have graduated from an accelerator program

What we’ll cover:

Getting product design right

How to maintain core values while getting culture ready for change

Analytics and using data to grow better and faster

Go-to-market strategies, positioning, and sales models

Once you’ve found the right product, for the right market, sold in the right way, you’re ready to step on the gas.
