WHAT’S THE FUNDING MORNING?
TheNextWomen believes that by increasing the success of female founders we’re building a more inclusive business society. We believe that by providing founders the access to knowledge and capital, we will succeed in our mission. That’s why we invite you to visit our Funding Morning every second Tuesday of the month. Because to build a business that is going to grow and be a success, you are going to need funding. But how do you get it? And better yet, where?
Every quarter we invite high-level investors from TheNextWomen Crowd Fund and other funds, banks and associations to sit down and help you to answer these questions. The Funding Mornings are designed to help you become investor ready and after 4 sessions you pitch your company in front of a panel of investors. We organize the Funding Mornings in a cycle of 4 modules plus a pitching opportunity – 1. Introduction to the investor landscape, 2. Getting the perfect pitch structure to fit your proposition, 3. Understanding what deal metrics fit your pitch, 4. Pitching and Negotiation, and finally you go up to give your pitch!
Are you already investment ready? Come and meet some of the greatest people in the field. Get the introductions you’re looking for and make valuable connections.
And who knows, you might walk away with an investor lead!

His time at mobility-tech start-up Toogethr marked a career defining moment for Hein. Facing high churn and low product activity, Toogethr had a challenge of its own. Biased decision making in earlier experience drove him to build the company customer and data centric. In high pace execution, proposition, product and channels were pivoted, backed by multiple data points including interviews of 800+ unique users.
