Launching March 16th


The Start Up to Exit Workshop Series is an Entrepreneurial Education Program designed to prepare Entrepreneurs to present to investors, structuring the company for funding and position the company for a successful Exit.


The First Pitch Workshop is focused on preparing the Entrepreneur to get the most out of their time in front of potential investors.  It’s the first impression, and it starts with knowing what potential investors need to know about your company to move forward in the investment process.

  • Company Fact Sheet

  • Investor Presentation Format and Content

  • Business Structure and Corporate Governance

  • Term Sheet and Deal Structure

  • Financial Projections

  • Pre-Money Valuation

  • Elevator Pitch

  • Due Diligence Preparation

  • Exit Strategy – Options for the Investor


The take away will be:

  • Company Fact Sheet

  • Investor Presentation

  • Due Diligence Checklist


The First Pitch Workshop will provide the tools and the knowledge to increase the potential for investor funding.
