What is the best form of investment for your business? It's a question with no simple
answer because every form comes with advantages and disadvantages. Fortunately,
Scaleup Vlaanderen is here to help ambitious entrepreneurs!

Have you ever considered looking beyond the usual loans and equity when it comes to financing your business? Creating a smart and diverse financing mix can be crucial to the success of your business, as equity is the most expensive way to finance your business.

In this Master Class, you will explore different fundraising strategies, including non-equity funding mechanisms. You might consider grants, revenue-based funding or crowdsourcing. Learn all about the pros and cons of the different (potential) elements of the funding mix and the process of accessing different funding sources. This workshop will also provide insight into different valuation methods.

After this workshop, you and your team will be able to:

1. Recognize the processes to successfully raise funds with your scaleup;

2. Identify the different financing options (equity, debt and grants) and which is more appropriate for which needs;

3. Create the optimal funding mix depending on your startup's situation and growth stage;

4. Prepare a data room for your fundraising process;

5. Determining an appropriate valuation (range) for your startup;

6. Prepare a good story for various investors and funders to convince them of your startup's potential;

7. Have an overview of different funding sources.

You and your team must become more comfortable dealing with potential investors to convince them to contribute to your growth ambitions.

Target Audience

This workshop is intended for any scaleup, regardless of your business model, target audience (B2B, B2C, B2G, etc.), or stage. It is mandatory that the person managing your fundraising participate (usually the CEO and/or CFO). It is recommended that all other people on your team involved in fundraising conversations also participate in this workshop.

No prior knowledge of fundraising is needed to benefit from this workshop. This workshop is ideal to combine with the workshops on financial planning and on legal aspects of fundraising.
