UPDATE: This cohort of The Raise is now full! But send us a message if you want to be included on the wait list and be the first to hear about the next cohort! • Trying to figure out how to fund your company? Or even thinking about maybe, one day, applying for a grant or pitching investors? And is it kind of making your head spin? Don't worry, girl -- we've been there. That's why we're creating The Raise, a program designed to help women-led companies effectively navigate the fundraising process, from grants to loans to venture capital! • This multi-week workshop includes a tailored overview of the key players, terms, and strategies that are essential to a successful raise, as well as a final “capstone” investment application that is uniquely suited to your company and the types of capital that are right for you. Our pilot cohort launches on July 8th and we have ONE more spot available! Send us a message for details if you're interested in participating.
