What any startup needs is funding. In a world where data is the new oil, every business is a data business. This means that developing the right data strategy, and positioning of data products is key in raising funding.

On this workshop, professor of entrepreneurship Walid Ghodbane will discuss topics like:

  • What are the different types of funding that a startup can follow?
  • When is the right time to go to a VC?
  • What funding alternatives exist to angels and VCs?
  • How to defend your choice in front of VCs and angel investors?

  • What are the formulas you should use to maximise success of the fundraising effort?

The workshop also includes consultation sessions, during which Professor Ghodbane will help you come up with the right fundraising strategy.

Who should attend this event?

  • Entrepreneurs who are trying to scale up their startup, and raise a series A or series B round.
  • The event is also relevant for early-stage startups and entrepreneurs who want to understand the process of fundraising better.
  • Startups with a strong data component
