Perfect your business pitch

When preparing for your crowdfunding campaign, the first and most important exercise is honing your pitch. As a Founder, it is your job to be able to articulate the mission of your company and the problem your product/service is solving, making sure whoever is listening fully understands why your business needs to exist. A perfect pitch is not only extremely valuable for your crowdfunding campaign,  but it’s also critical to getting your first customers, and eventually securing your next round of funding after your campaign. Join us for this interactive session with IFundWomen Startup Coach, Elizabeth Eichhorn, where you'll write and practice pitching your business live!

Funding options for pre-revenue startups

What comes first – the money or the product? How can you make revenue, apply for grants, qualify for loans, or get VC funding if you can't get the money to produce the product or service in the first place? Every day we see entrepreneurs get stuck at this phase. Don't let this dilemma stop you from pushing forward on your business! It's time to break out of this ineffective thought loop and start creating revenue for your business. There are several options to raise capital for your business and picking the right one or one(s) depends on a lot of different components. In this workshop, we'll explore several funding options for pre-revenue and pre-product startups like bootstrapping through early sales, crowdfunding, grants, investors & more to find the right funding fit for your startup based on your goals and business sector. Come prepared with questions for an in-depth 30-minute open Q&A and troubleshooting section at the end of the session!

How to hit your funding goal by network mapping

In business, your network is your net worth. Raising money is first and foremost a sales process and requires a sales approach in order for you to hit your goal.  The IFW Network mapping process provides you with a realistic idea of how much money you can raise through your campaign. The process involves looking through your contacts in your various communities, platforms, and devices, and mapping out how much you expect them to give. Taking out this guesswork will allow you to be more targeted in your marketing, confident with your ask, and clear on the path to hitting your funding goal. Also, learn strategies for expanding and growing your network if your immediate list is limited.
