About This Class

John L of Maven Capital Group says "Excellent course!  I wish more people knew the proper way to approach investors.  With so many start up companies out there, having the edge above the others by knowing the proper process and what is expected of start up companies is of utmost importance".

Paul R says  “This is the best course I’ve taken on Udemy”

Lets face it, finding investors for your business can be difficult at best.  Its actually pretty much impossible.  If you are new to the journey you may not yet have endured the endless "not interested" comments you will receive.  If you have been trying for some time, you are probably exhausted by those "not interested" comments.

What You Will Learn In This Course

This course teaches entrepreneurs, startups and small businesses all things involved in the capital raising process from A to Z.  Starting with an introduction to what to expect from the process, to what tools you will need, and how to go about finding potential investors is covered. 

With so many companies looking for capital and a limited supply of lenders & investors, it is important to give yourself any advantage you can to make the process effective and results oriented.  The investment process is often misunderstood - how much should you ask for, can you back it up, how do you approach investors, what type of investors are best, what should your expectations be for the investment process.   Get all your questions answered with this course. 

I will help you!

At any point during the course if you are confused or need clarification, send me a message! I'm here to help YOU the student, and I love interacting with you.  I've been in accounting & finance over 20 years and can most likely answer your question. 

Still not sold?  See what my friend JT had to say about it when I had him review it:

If you are a startup CEO or small business, don't be scared by the raising capital process.  It can be daunting, but after this course you will be well equipped to get funding for your company!
