Today, starting, or building a business often means having to develop presentation skills, sales skills and becoming hyper proficient in self-promotion.
As a result, entrepreneurs find themselves needing to learn and improve on a wide range of ‘soft-skills’ that stand between them and access to the funds they need to take their ventures forward.
This practical workshop addresses many of the challenges that you may face as an entrepreneur seeking funding, and covers:
- Goal setting
- Verbal pitching strategies
- Creating a quality slide deck
- Different types of slide deck, and understanding what to include
- Common mistakes, and dos and don'ts
- Insights into investors and their mindsets
- Locating investors
- Fundraising in a COVID-19 climate
- Resources, examples, true stories, and tips!
The workshop will be run by an entrepreneur who has been a judge at both local and national start-up competitions, so be sure to bring your questions!
