The Fundraising Cycle

1: Become fundraising ready

Let’s say you start an investment round for one million NOK. The average investor you get provides 50K NOK. Then you need 20 investors. Let’s say you close 1/10 of the investors you meet. Then you need 200 meetings. It doesn’t hurt preparing a little bit.

We provide you with a complete understanding on startup fundraising, and the hacks learned from teaching over 400 investor since 2015 on what to look for in a startup.

The Fundraising for Startups program is for you who are interested in spending less time on fundraising and more time on building your startup.

2: Build your investment deal

I like your pitch - let´s talk…

So you found an investor that want to negotiate, congrats! But now what? What investment instrument should you use? What is your startup really worth? How do you know if the investor is a good fit for you? What should you expect from the investor? What is your fundraising plan? 

With the unique 7 week Angel Challenge Program as stage 2 of the cycle, you get to work with real investors and experienced mentors that help you answer all these questions and guide you through the process of building a deal. Are you ready for your biggest challenge yet?

3: Complete your investment round

Its time to kick off your fundraising campaign with the deal created and lead investors from the angel challenge program. Use the learnings, connections and investor network you have created you should have the best starting position to attract those investors, fill the deal and succeed with your fundraising goals.

A program with a steep learning curve! Made a lot of valuable connections, and most importantly got investor ready. Hopefully, we will end up receiving funding through AC, which we did not think would happen so soon! I am super grateful for all new knowledge, experiences and connections gained through the program. Thank you, guys!
