Everything you need to know for a successful fundraiser.

How to finance my startup?

Raising funds for a startup is often essential. It's not always easy, especially when it's the first time. You have to master certain codes, a vocabulary, know what your interlocutors expect and how to convince them, and prepare for the post-investment phase. The aim of this course is to familiarize you with the actors and techniques of fundraising, to help you succeed in your entrepreneurial project.

What topics will you discuss?

  • How to succeed in the post-investment phase?
