ASCENDER STARTERS SERIES – FOR ANYONE STARTING A BUSINESS, NON-PROFIT, SIDE-PROJECT, OR INITIATIVE

Preparing for the Ask: An Investment Readiness Workshop

Asking for investment can be an overwhelming task. Whether it’s $10,000 from a relative or a $1.5 million seed round, preparing for the ask takes patience, perseverance, and a lot of pre-work. What financial documents should you include? How do you determine if an investor is the right fit for your business? Join us in August to improve your investment readiness and gain confidence in making the ask.
