Crowdfunding: Making the ask w/ Virginia Almendarez

If you don’t ask, you don’t get! The secret to raising money is ALL about how you make the ask! We get it, asking for money from your friends, family, or complete strangers can be awkward and uncomfortable.

Combine your pitching skills with your network mapping strategy to determine which message is right for every type of potential backer for your campaign. Join IFundWomen Startup Coach, Virginia Almendarez, for this interactive workshops where you will learn how to confidently make the ask, get over those awkward feelings, and raise more money for your crowdfunding campaign.

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, Alex Brockelman, where you'll write and practice pitching your business live!

Creating your first business plan

Unsure where to start on creating and formalizing your business plan? A good business plan guides you through each stage of starting and managing your business. You'll use your business plan as a roadmap for how to structure, run, and grow your new business. But, you don’t need to write a 10 page document with MBA-level detail in order to start building your business. In this workshop with IFundWomen Product Manager, Maya Brooks, you’ll use the IFundWomen Startup Canvas to help you conceptualize, formalize, and organize your business plan. We’ll brainstorm together on your business model, your target customers, your marketing strategy, and your value proposition.
