Entrepreneurship Essentials (E2): Fundraising for Startups
Join entrepreneur Madeleine Barr for a workshop on fundraising basics for startups. Madeleine is a software engineer and University of Chicago graduate that previously founded Piecewise, a student loan counseling and repayment platform that universities used to lower student loan default rates. She raised $1.3M in venture capital in a pre-seed round for her company. For this workshop, you will learn:
- Whether venture funding is right for your company and if so, what kind
- Fundraising basics every founder should understand
- Finding the right investors for your company
- Any and all questions are welcomed. Because of the stage she raised funding, this workshop will be particularly beneficial for pre-seed and seed stage (early) companies.
