Fast Track Your Fundraise in 2018
Are you a cleantech entrepreneur looking to sharpen your pitch and prepare yourself for $1M+ in investment capital? The Cleantech MasterMind Capital program is a four-week program for up to 16 entrepreneurs. Successful applicants may also apply to be one of the eight standout entrepreneurs pitching in the Cleantech Investment Showcase – Vancouver’s premier cleantech deal flow event.
From February 14 through March 7, the Cleantech MasterMind Capital series is a combination of workshops, seminars, mentor-driven education and peer support that will test an entrepreneur’s investor readiness. Successful applicants will leave this program better prepared for the fundraising process, and in a stronger position to access deal flow events in Vancouver and elsewhere.
The 16 companies selected to participate in the program will be considered for inclusion in the VC-adjudicated Cleantech Investor Showcase* scheduled during the GLOBE Forum, the world’s largest leadership summit for sustainable business, on March 14-16, 2018.
WHO SHOULD APPLY FOR CLEANTECH MASTERMIND CAPITAL?
This session is designed for CEOs and founders of growth-oriented startups based in Vancouver. Applications are welcomed from a broad range of clean tech industries, including traditional and emerging sectors like smart city/IOT solutions (with an environmental focus); smart, connected mobility; and green infrastructure.
You should apply if you and your company
- Have launched your product or service
- Have raised a seed round or two
- Are ready for the next stage of growth and are poised to seek additional external sources of funding
- Are looking to raise capital in the next 6 months (i.e. working on a new iteration of your original investment strategy)
If you think you meet the above criteria, we encourage you to apply for the Cleantech MasterMind Capital series before February 4th, 2018.
*Please note that although the Cleantech MasterMind Capital series will provide you with the skills to pitch and raise capital, participation in the program does not guarantee a position in the Cleantech Investor Showcase.
