Module 2
A curated investor network is far more valuable than most founders realise. Building a list of investors that will add value to your specific business will save you time and increase your chances of securing investment. In Module 2 we cover methods for researching the right investors, understanding your ideal investor’s investment mandate, how to get introductions to your chosen investors, and what to do when you do get that chance to pitch.

Module 3
Fundraising should be approached and managed in a similar manner to other business processes. We start with your fundraising strategy, which serves as a guideline for all of your fundraising activities. This module covers fundraising process flow, startup funding stages, and creating your own fundraising roadmap and milestones.

Module 4
How does an investor choose who to invest in? Understanding what motivates an investor to hand over their capital is a key component in finding the right investor for your startup. This is especially relevant to the impact and ESG space. We dive into the mindset of the ideal impact and ESG venture capitalist.

Module 5
Can you pitch your business in 2 minutes? In today’s fast-paced world, founders need to be able to catch an investor’s attention as quickly as possible. The shorter and snappier your elevator pitch, the better! The exercise in this module is designed to assist you to come up with the best possible elevator pitch for your sustainable startup, and deliver it in record time.
