Fundraising Prep

Fundraising is a complex challenge – whether raising nonprofit donations or pursuing equity startup capital, and we are here to help. At TenX, we have assisted startups in raising every type of capital possible: from $5K-$8MM range: credit cards, crowd funding, friends and family capital, micro loans, donor funding, grants, bank loans, lines of credit, seed capital, angel capital, VC, and strategic investment.

Many entrepreneurs either don’t know what types of funding are right for where the business is currently at, or they don’t know how funders evaluate them, and how to successfully secure funding.

About the Program

For venture, social impact, or nonprofit teams who are planning to raise capital, we invite you to participate in the TenX Fundraising Prep program.

This intensive program includes 6 learning modules, covering:

-Pitch deck review

-Create & use a 12 month company roadmap

-Develop 12 month financials & itemized use of funds

-Explore types of seed funding

-Deep dive on angel / VC funding (or PRI / foundation grants)

-Develop a best & worst case funding plan

This is an intense 3-week bootcamp, taught via Google Hangout video, with reading, discussion, mentorship, and peer support. The ideal participant is highly motivated, eager to learn new skills and is currently preparing for fundraising, and committed to improving the company’s funding documents and story / narrative. Participation is very limited.



TenX Fundraising Success

Since 2009, TenX alumni have raised every type of capital possible, from $5K in new credit cards, to $8MM in Series B financing. Along the way, we have worked with our teams to dial their pitches, refine business model and financials, shape pitch decks, rehearse for competitions, negotiate term sheets, and maintain enthusiasm throughout the fundraising cycle. image

We have judged and mentored startups at competitive investment, business, and social impact competitions, such as Startup Weekend, Tech4Change, Fast Pitch, PivotEast, New Venture Championship, Startup Riot, Pitchlandia, National Day of Civic Hacking, MEET Social Innovation Case Competition, and many more. We know what great teams who are successful at fundraising look like, and can help you see where the gaps are and how to improve your chances and target the right stage of capital.
