► How Are We Different?
Fundamental Principles: First, we teach the fundamental principles of raising capital that can be applied to any stage, or type, of company (not just early-stage tech startups). After that foundation of knowledge is solid, we teach advanced skills on it.
Learning Journey: Our courses take entrepreneurs on a learning journey that is designed for efficiency. Studying the right information in the right order, and getting feedback at the right points time, are all important.
Hybrid Learning: Most of our courses are designed so the entrepreneur stops at certain points and gets feedback from a coach, mentor, or colleague. These feedback loops allow the entrepreneur to try-fail-learn with their coach, and before they get in front of investors.
Improvement Scores Support Fundraising: A coach can score an entrepreneur on core learning objectives as they progress through our courses. This is not a grade, but a relative improvement score that allows the coach to focus on the areas where the entrepreneur needs the most help. Then, those scores can be averaged across a group of entrepreneurs and used to show the success of the education program, support grant applications or budgets, or for other fundraising purposes.
