MasterClass: Becoming Fundable

Funding a startup takes skills across 10 areas of expertise.  The Becoming Fundable Masterclass uncovers where founders can build on their strengths and augment all areas to improve their hit rate with investors.


Founders learn how to tell the story of their company powerfully and completely, and how to see their startup through an investors' eyes.
