|Bay Area Entrepreneurs Workshop will improve your chances of getting funded and improve your odds of success, post-financing. Not a seminar series, it is a workshop with learn-by-doing tasks, based on presentations from investors and seasoned experts. You will create materials investors want to see, and receive individualized feedback before presenting to potential investors.
BAE Workshop is open to serious entrepreneurs who have a viable business concept. Send us your business summary and if we feel it is fundable, we'll invite to give us your investor pitch.Send your executive summary to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include only non-proprietary information.
We are so confident we can improve your odds of getting funded, we will invest between $5,000 and $20,000 in your company, depending on the number of investors and start-ups we admint.
BAE Workshop is a series of sessions one morning a week for eight weeks. Offered two prime Bay Area locations – the Peninsula and San Francisco. Each session deals with a topic critical to fundraising. At the conclusion of the Workshop, participants will have the set of documents and plans that they need to improve their chances of obtaining funding from VCs or angels. The final session will involve presenting your best case to VCs and angels and getting personalized feedback from them. Following the Workshop, we will match you up with investors who invest in your space and provide the highly valuable introductions.
Each session runs from 9:00 AM until noon. Palo Alto Workshops take place on Wednesdays.
