There are still too many ideas chasing too few investment dollars in Australia’s startup ecosystem.

If you’re chasing your first investment to help bring your startup idea to market, how do you differentiate yourself from the pack? How do you prepare your startup to be investable? How do you pitch your opportunity, and how do you find and connect with the right investors?

The workshop will cover:

  • What are the stages of startup investment?
  • When am I ready to raise a first investment round?
  • How do I know how much to raise?
  • Managing the early investor conversion funnel
  • Finding good early investors
  • What makes a good early investor?
  • Should I apply for an accelerator program?
  • Social media for investment
  • Crowdfunding benefits and challenges
  • Investment round hacks

Alan Jones will run you through a practical step-by-step workbook with worksheets and templates you can use for pitch decks, email pitches and LinkedIn connection requests. You’ll also receive a free pass to pitch your startup to investors and advisors in The 156 accelerator program at BlueChilli in Sydney or Melbourne later in 2015.
