Workshop description

This workshop helps founders understand how venture capital works. We'll delve into what investors seek in early-stage startups, explore their mindset, and provide tips for a killer startup pitch deck. Check out our agenda:

  • Investment Criteria Insights: Learn what investors care about and how to make your startup stand out.
  • Investor Mind Mapping: Understand the decision factors that grab investors' attention.
  • Startup Pitch Deck Structure: Discover the secrets to crafting a killer presentation for potential investors.
  • Pitch your startup in 1 minute: Introduce yourself and your startup for quick feedback.
  • MVP: Understanding how significant the decisions that are made in the MVP stage and how to experiment effectively without taking all the risk.
  • Low-code Product Development: Exploring low-code tools to create a pre-product that can be used to test your company's hypotheses.
  • Experimentation stories: How companies succeeded and failed by either taking their users' feedback seriously or by avoiding taking feedback altogether.  

The goal of the workshop is to create a supportive community for startup founders. Let's connect, share stories, and grow together. The startup journey is a rollercoaster, but together, we're making it smoother. Can't wait to see you there!
