Recent Review:

Daniel N. says "Fantastic course from someone who actually knows what happens on the inside with VC's.  The entire capital raising process is such a mystery to most people and entrepreneurs, and forget about knowing how to go about getting capital raised and stand out from the others.  Chris goes in depth on the process, and as someone whose worked with VC's I can tell he really knows his stuff.  Highly recommended for all entrepreneurs, a must-take I would say."

Why You Should Take This Course:

As someone who has helped startup companies raise venture capital, I know that raising venture capital for your company can be a long and frustrating process.  Part of the problem is entrepreneurs do not know how to properly approach venture capital firms.  There are standard primary documents every start up company should have which venture capitalists are looking to see.  Learn from someone who has been through the process and successfully raised capital for several companies. 

Start raising venture capital today with these key 4 documents!

In this course we will review these 4 documents in detail.  I will show you how the proper presentation, what information should be included, what should not be included, and how to properly present these to investors.  As well I've added in some extra special tips and tricks on the best way to successfully obtain venture capital for your business!

What We Do In The Course:  

  • Review & examine an investor quality business plan

  • Review & examine a 1 page executive summary

  • Review and examine a 5 year financial model & budget 

  • Review an investor presentation / pitch deck

  • Give you tips and tricks on how to best approach investors

  • And Much More!

  • At any point if you have a question, please feel free to ask through the course forum, I'd be happy to answer any and all questions.
