Funding for Entrepreneurs

Join us for a preview of our upcoming Start Smart Class, to learn about the various funding options available to early-stage startups and entrepreneurs.

This 1-hour overview workshop is designed to provide attendees with a comprehensive introduction to the different funding options available to them, including venture capital, angel investing, crowdfunding, and grants. And most importantly provide an introduction to the “fundraising mindset.” Our expert speaker, Michael Burtov, and Start Smart Class instructor, will share his knowledge and experience, and will be available to answer any questions you may have.

During the workshop, you will be introduced to the pros and cons of each funding option, as well as how to prepare a pitch.

Our workshop is designed to be inclusive and welcoming to all underrepresented entrepreneurs, including those from minority ethnic backgrounds, women, LGBTQ+ individuals, and individuals with disabilities. We understand that access to funding is essential for the growth and success of any business, and our goal is to provide attendees with the tools they need to secure the funding they need to bring their ideas to life.
