Expert Led Support Programs
GroundWork Milestone Workshops
In these interactive virtual sessions, founders present their next strategic milestone for an exploration of its cogency — i.e., is it the right milestone? Would investors agree? What does the milestone unlock, what needs to be true in order to reach it, and what assumptions underlie it? We will use the principles used in the GroundWork Growth methodology, the curriculum taught in the Startup Haven Accelerator program.
Capital Strategy Workshop
Fundraising is hard. A slick pitch deck and a confident story is seldom enough, even in the best of times. And we are not in the best of times.
This interactive workshop dives into the key decisions every founder must make in order to run an efficient fundraising process and maximize their chances for success — when to raise, who to raise from, how much to raise, and at what valuation. We will also explore how investors think and the essence of investor diligence.
Advisor Office Hours
Book time with an expert in a number of areas: legal, financials, fundraising, intellectual property, real estate, and more.
Startup Haven Pitch Coaching sessions are not just pitch deck feedback. Presenters decide what to focus on and then get in-depth, no-nonsense advice from experienced founders and investors — what’s good, what’s bad and what can make it better.
