As part of the Founder Institute’s new series of free online startup events for entrepreneurs practicing social distancing, we are pleased to welcome Mike Lingle. Click here to RSVP, and join us on Tuesday, August 25th (4pm ET) for this live, interactive event to discuss how to confidently pitch your financial projections to investors.

  • Want to turn your pitch deck into an investor magnet? 
  • Want to tell a compelling story with your numbers and key metrics? 

Founders who know their numbers impress investors. They also build better businesses more quickly. This session provides easy-to-implement suggestions and practical advice when you're raising money. We’ll run through valuation shortcuts, proven fundraising strategies, and how to turn the last slide of your pitch deck into a FOMO machine that convinces investors to write that big check. Slide templates are provided for you to use.
