How to nail your startup's funding announcement


A funding round is the most important message that you can send to your customers, investors, employees and stakeholders. Being financially stable is key to building a foundation of trust as well as creating an opportunity to nurture it. Trust is the most important business and brand asset and plays a central role in revenue generation and customer retention.

Nailing your funding announcement is therefore critical for any startup, scaleup or VC because it fosters trust, builds your reputation and can ultimately be used as a future revenue creation tool.

We don’t believe in wasting your time, which is why this course is packed with the tangible steps, resources and information you need to plan, create and execute great funding announcements and capitalise on that success. 

Created by Bianca Zwart, who successfully executed funding announcements for fast-paced European companies such as bunq, BUX, Lepaya, Happeo, Tellow and handled M&A news for Lepaya, and bunq.
