TiE Women Masterclass: Your 101 Guide To Entrepreneurship

When: 03 May 2021 3:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Location: Online

1. It is easy to identify a bad idea or application. But even more importantly, some good ideas also get rejected. An application where a promising concept is poorly described cannot create a ‘picture’ in the mind of a reviewer/investor. Knowing the ways to portray your idea to an investor accurately is a game changer.

2. Learning how an early-stage investor thinks is a huge asset to a lot of startups. These investors are open-minded, objective, excellent listeners, and adept at helping founders develop their thinking. Knowing the factors that your potential investors' weigh in when making decisions help startups bring exactly what is needed to the table.

3. Even once startups pass the hurdle of raising and securing capital, having an effective go to market strategy that serves as drivers of customer acquisition and demand creation helps influence customers in their engagement with a company.

This 1.5 hour masterclass will help you;

1. To differentiate your investment application in a haystack with the power of words
2. Explore how unique an early investor’s mind works and what will impress them
3. To learn how to grow your company by increasing and measuring customer engagement
