Startup Fundraising 101
Need to fundraise and don’t know where to start? Or do you just want a refresher on the basics of fundraising?
In this hour-long session, we will dive deep into the facts of fundraising. You’ll learn about your fundraising options at every stage of development, the fundraising process, what investors want to see, crafting your financial models, your revenue projections, pitch deck essentials and more.
I work with entrepreneurs and businesses at all stages of development, providing financial insight and mentorship. I founded Early Growth in 2008 to provide a service that I couldn’t find when I was working in early stage companies – outsourced high-quality accounting and strategic financial consulting services on-demand. I personally oversee all of the work we do at Early Growth to ensure top-quality service. As any successful entrepreneur can tell you, success depends on more than simply having a good product/service offering. The business issues are what will make or break you. Early Growth has expertise in providing just-in-time financial support for small businesses — from fundraising to cash management to strategic planning to financial projections to creating and implementing simple financial systems that work.
I’m inspired by the entrepreneurs I work with on a daily basis. It’s my passion to help businesses with great potential to focus their internal resources on what they do best — so they can scale and succeed.
