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 5 modules – The perfect pitch deck, the investor memorandum, the termsheet, the pitch training, the pitch – which are repeated throughout the year.
How does it work?
1. You are member of The Next Women:
a. You sign up for the cycle, follow all the modules and get to pitch at the end.
b. You’ve participated in a previous cycle and started a new funding round, in which case you can apply directly for the pitch.
2. You’re not yet a member of The Next Women:
You can join one of the modules below – for free – to get a taste of our community.
Afterwards one of our accountmanagers will be in touch to talk to you about our memberships and other activities.
Your pitch deck, basically your business plan in an attractive, clean-cut, insightful and persuasive presentation.
There’s different tools and different versions to create the perfect deck.
Is it your first point of contact with a potential investor?
Or did you already have one or more conversations and is it time to dive into the details?
During this one hour course we talk you through the basics, teach you what’s absolutely vital and what’s the difference between your business plan, pitch deck and investor deck.
Everything you need to start your funding round.
The investment memorandum is a legal document that a company presents to potential investors to explain the objectives, risks, and investment terms surrounding a funding round.
This includes financial statements, management biographies, company details, and many more items that help give a detailed view of the business and financial plan going forward.
It’s a short document, about 20–30 pages, which highlights the most important aspects and opportunities your investment offers.
It’s very similar to your pitch deck, which you would have used as a visual cue to support your pitch.
The main difference is your IM will be much meatier. It will include more analysis, projections and explanation than you could possibly reveal in your pitch without boring your investors to tears.
Time to negotiate!
A term sheet is a nonbinding agreement setting forth the basic terms and conditions under which an investment will be made. It serves as a template to develop more detailed legally binding documents. Once the parties involved reach an agreement on the details laid out in the term sheet, a binding agreement or contract that conforms to the term sheet details is then drawn up.
So what should definetly be in there? What are some pitfalls to be aware off?
You might have all the confidence in the world already, but stepping in front of investors to convince them to invest in your company is another thing!
Next to that female founders have to deal with prevention questions, instead of promotion questions.
We prepare you for all of this and more!
The moment’s here: we’ve put together a panel of investors. Angel investors, investment managers from different banks, crowdfunding platforms and venture capital funds. Tailored to your business.
Every entrepreneur get’s 3 minutes to pitch followed by a 5 minute Q&A.
No garuanteed funding (of course), but the change to pitch, connect and who knows what else!
