Video-Based Format

You’ll prepare the live sessions by watching recorded live streams on all the topics mentioned above.

Here’s an example (starts at 0’36).

Live Webinars

You can ask all your questions about the week’s topic during our Live Webinars.

We regularly invite an experienced guest (a prominent Venture Capitalist or a successful fundraised Founder) to answer your questions.

If you can’t attend the session, we’ll collect your questions in advance and answer them during the stream. You’ll have access to the recording. 

E-mentoring sessions

The e-mentoring sessions are run by me, not an inexperienced member of the team. I’ll make sure you progress towards your goals.

There are two types of mentoring sessions: Individual and Group.

Group Mentoring sessions will help you share your experience with other fundraising Founders from all over the world enrolled in the program. And benefit from their best practices, too.

You want to test it first?

I hold live streams on all these topics most Tuesdays. 

It’s a good opportunity for you to make sure I know what I’m talking about, and have a practical, from-the-field approach to mentoring.

Let’s talk about your pitch deck!

The Pitch Fix is a free, 30-min, 1-on-1 video conference to talk about your pitch deck and fundraising strategy.  

Understanding the basics of venture capital may prevent raising too much/too little or taking institutional money at the wrong time.
