Raising money is a huge challenge. To be able to raise any money at all, you must first understand how investors think.
This specific course covers how post-seed and pre-Series A investors analyze startups and what they are looking for. We will have in-depth conversations around startups and funding with several real-world investors.
Designed for tech entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs interested in the post-seed and pre-Series A stages of financing startups, this course provides insights into the minds of several investors operating in this space for many years very successfully.
If you haven’t taken our courses that would lead you to the post seed stage of funding, please take them here.
A fundable and proven business is essential if you want introductions to angels and VCs.
The reality is less than 1% of businesses are fundable. What that means is more than 99% of the entrepreneurs waste their energy on pitching their unfundable businesses to investors. Hugely unproductive and unhealthy.
There is a reason why savvy entrepreneurs have been using the Bootstrap First, Raise Money Later strategy.
The following six courses below will help you grasp bootstrapping, which is a proven financing approach for a tech company until it has validated its product with paying customers. Study various types of bootstrapping and combine them to your liking. Choose those that are the most suitable for you. Apply the methodology.
Only when you bootstrap to validation, think about outside capital. Get to know how investors think, so you can speak their language and attain that elusive holy grail of investor-entrepreneur fit. These three courses can help you further in understanding the complex world of startup funding.
All of the above courses are based on The 1Mby1M Methodology. This bundle of courses is designed to assist you very specifically with the fundraising stage of your business. Take these courses in any order you wish, combine them as needed, but do not skip out on learning. You’ll be a lot more productive.
P.S. We’re looking to partner with community leaders who write blogs, teach and mentor entrepreneurs, and help support startup ecosystems in every corner of the world, no matter how small or how remote. I have written about my own journey building startup ecosystems around the world, and how you can draw from my lessons from the trenches. If you’re interested in partnering with 1Mby1M, please consider joining our ambassador program.
