We cover over 25 ways to fund your company. Whether it is for validation or growth, the best way to manage a company is have enough resources so it can thrive.
No matter how big or small your company is, we’ll show you how to understand the needs of decision-makers who can provide the capital or resources you need.
When you are not prepared, not only you don’t get funded, you ruin your reputation, waste investors, supporters, or lenders’ time, and doubt the value of your company and your leadership.

Seeking funds is a very stressful process. With all the negative narrative about how difficult it is for women to get funded. We begin the program establishing a solid foundation of confidence and competence, so the process is more enjoyable and does not disempower women.
Lesson 1: Think and act to get funded
Lesson 2: Talk language of funding
This type of funding is called ‘bootstrapping’ in academic research. It makes funding needs disappear and is fairly common in startups. In the particular case of women, using unfunding can lead to a lower ‘book’ value of the equity, so it needs to be used wisely.
Lesson 3. Reduce cash flow gap without compromising on quality or value
Lesson 4: Use the power of crowds
This type of funding expects rewards but does not require a collateral and is more flexible than debt funding. These funders will share some of the risk and rewards of the company, and expect unique forms of rewards.
Lesson 5: Manage the initial tribe: founders, family, friends
Lesson 6: Invite small investors: angels and cashcowers
Lesson 7: Reach the Olympics of funding: venture capitalists
Leveraged funding involves backing up funds with some form of collateral or insurance, and with supported future cash flow. Debt has very strict and specific criteria that involve a careful combination of collateral, cash flow, and risks.
Lesson 8: Use the many forms of debt to leverage your cash needs.
The value is in the execution. Learn how everything you learn in negotiation goes against negotiation for funding. Manage the feedback gap (women receive less valuable feedback than men) through establishing a tunnel of trust and creating a virtuous circle.
Lesson 9: Define, support, and negotiate your company’s value.
Bonus Lesson: Integrate the program into a funding process.

“This is the missing piece of the entrepreneurial puzzle, the perfect complement to Steve Blank and Eric Ries’ Startup books. It’s quite refreshing because quite often you read all about how someone was awesome and their ‘glory days’ type stories rather than ‘I made a mistake once, here’s what you can do to avoid it in case you’re making that same mistake too’. I would highly recommend this program to anyone.”Angela Han, AustraliaMarketing Titans
