At a time when there are so many ways to fund your startup, from angels to accelerators, it's more important than ever to develop a funding strategy that fits your particular needs. Maybe you shouldn't even raise money! In this session we'll explore the options and help you think through not just your initial funding but a trajectory to stay funded until you've reached your goal, be that an independent public company or a self-sustaining social venture. We'll also try to remove the mystique of VC and as usual bring some case examples to bear to bring it all to life.
The idea behind this series is to create a structure for entrepreneurs and innovators to think through some of the key steps that could accelerate their success in starting a business. The course is broken down into ten units that cover key areas of building a business.
Each unit has workshops, case studies, and related articles. The workshops cover all the key information about the unit. They generally include and overview, a 1-2 hour video, and the slides that go along with the video. The case studies illustrate the concepts applied in the real world. Finally, the related articles dive more deeply into key concepts from the unit.
