Our inaugural cohort for the Investment Readiness Program has started, and we could not be more excited! With three weeks under their belts, our participants have completed their first practice pitch presentation.

The design of the Investment Readiness Training program takes tech entrepreneurs and startup founders through the process of delivering an effective pitch, finding their ideal investor type, and working through the proper due diligence. Over nine weeks, participants will participate in interactive learning with experts, guest speakers, and other entrepreneurs. Participants will learn the tools, frameworks, and best practices that help build confidence when seeking strategic impact funding. At the end of the program, all participants will pitch their company at a public Pitch Showcase happening on Thursday, May 12th, from 12 – 2pm PST.

We are thrilled to have accepted a diverse range of tech entrepreneurs into the Investment Readiness Training program. Our participants include founders from TruGIS, ListSimple, Print Home, and Advanced BioCarbon 3D.
