Frequently Asked Questions

You need a basic understanding of what Venture Capital is and why startups raise money. You will learn the technical stuff with me, and I’ll also share the best sources around (the Blog is a good place to start.)

You can ask all your questions during the live webinar, or by commenting on the online modules,  or during the mentoring sessions, or via the platform’s messaging system.

I’m here to help.

Both. Although there are differences between a Pre-Seed, Seed, and Series A round, the ultimate logic is the same: convince an investor to put money in your startup. I’ll address the differences during our live sessions.

As much as possible, you will be placed in homogeneous cohorts.

They are Zoom-based webinars where I address one specific topic of the Funding Accelerator Program. I usually hold them on Tuesdays at 5pm CET and they typically last 30 minutes to 45 minutes.

It’s a great forum to ask all your questions on Venture Capital, fundraising, startup life, and entrepreneurship in general. 

Live webinars are free and anyone can attend.

You can watch the Live Webinars in replay if you are part of the Full plan (by invitation only) or the Extended plan (see the pricing above).

Every week you have a deliverable to produce that is needed by Investors to study your startup funding opportunity. Some of these deliverables are based on tools that we provide: a Valuation model, a Cash Flow Forecast template, an Investors’ list template, a Fundraising Checklist, a Preferred Shares and SAFEs model.

My proprietary VC Bankability Audit helps me assess your eligibility to Venture Capital money, and the coherence of your main funding parameters (amount & valuation) with your development stage.

It contains all the questions any Investor would ask you during a first meeting. 

If you enrolled into the Extended plan as an individual, you get two one-hour video conferences with me: the first one at the beginning of the program to debrief your VC Bankability Audit and discuss your pitch deck and fundraising strategy; the second one at the end of the program to review your final pitch deck. Every week, I also provide recorded feedback on your deliverables. The live + asynchronous e-mentoring dynamic is designed to help you succeed despite a packed schedule.  

If you enrolled as part of an institution (Startup Accelerator, University, Business or Engineering School, Corporate University, etc.), we’ll have group coaching sessions every week to cover the key learnings and comment on your deliverables.

VC Pitching Track: we run a complementary 8-week program to help you craft an insanely effective pitch deck. You do a couple of pages every week and post them online, so I can provide feedback on each page.

Participants completing the Extended plan will have a dedicated Demo Day page on our platform, which will be pushed to over 6,000 active investors opening our newsletter and 3,000 investors in my LinkedIn network. 

Invitations are given in priority to categories under-represented in Venture Capital (basically anyone who is NOT an Ivy-league educated white male). Get noticed by asking questions during the Live Webinars and commenting on the content I put out there: Blog, Forums, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc.

Once in, you’re expected to be actively completing the weekly deliverables to remain enrolled.
