Norcal SBDC Affiliate partner, Port Labs Presents: Deep Dive – Fund Your Product Session 3

September 26, 2023 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm

Raising funds for your business can be a stressful and harrowing process, but being prepared and knowledgeable can make your fundraising less stressful and dramatically increase your chances of getting the capital you need. With the right tools, planning to raise capital can turn into a manageable and even exciting growth opportunity.

If you’re looking to make taking that next step in the capital raise process a success, this two-week intensive program is for you: Deep Dive: Fund Your Product.

What Are Deep Dives?

Deep Dives are multi-session, interactive workshops for 12-20 entrepreneurs. Participants build out essential components of their business plans in an environment of exploration and mutual support. In each session, our coaches deliver targeted short lectures and facilitate a mix of curated breakout discussions, generative exercises, and 1:1 guidance. This facilitation lets participants implement learning in real-time. At the end of a Deep Dive, participants have a clear picture of their next steps to level up their projects, newly-written materials to achieve their goals, and a host of new connections to like-minded colleagues and coaches to support them on their journey.

What Will We Cover?

Deep Dive: Fund Your Product is a four-session series designed to take enthusiastic entrepreneurs through everything they need to know to better understand their business funding needs, identify sources of capital, plan for financial success as an entrepreneur, and identify key information to get the capital they need. Our small business and financial planning expert, Jonathan Salsman, will cover key areas of focus in the session and will also be available for 1:1 coaching throughout the session and beyond.

Session One (September 19): Identifying Your Capital Need

Session Two (September 21): What Kind of Capital Should You Raise?
