One of the biggest challenges faced by many founders is fundraising. Most founders are excellent at growing their businesses and getting customers but are less proficient in the fundraising game. As such, many founders mismanage the process and don’t do justice to their businesses. Some may end up raising insufficient funds, accepting unfair and/or unfavourable terms, or diluting themselves too much with investors that they don’t even like. It is needless to say, making fundraising mistakes has drastic implications on the health of the startup and also affects the final rewards that await successful founders.
The good news is that many of these issues can be overcome through proper education, planning and execution.
Our trainer, Der Shing, has been an active angel investor in technology startups since 2012 and has helped many startups with experience sharing and networks to help them grow to their full potential. Currently, he is also a Partner with AngelCentral, a Venture Partner with Jungle Ventures / Seedplus and a Director of Entrepreneur First. Between Shao Ning and himself, they have invested directly in more than 20 startups and indirectly in hundreds more via seven VCs.
For the first time in Singapore, he will be sharing with founders how they can do a better job with fundraising via a 3-hour content-packed workshop.
In this workshop, you will be able to get into the mind of both VCs and angel investors. You will understand their portfolio thinking, financial mathematics, evaluation criteria and mindset. This helps you to position yourself best for a successful fundraising round. On top of this, we will also cover the actual fundraising process and due diligence on processes needed.
Note that this workshop will not cover legal issues as that will be covered in ‘Legal Masterclass for Founders.’
This course is brought to you by AngelCentral, as part of our mission to build a community of effective and competent angel investors in ASEAN.
