This intensive, full-day bootcamp provides a thorough introduction to funding options and opportunities for U.S. education companies and offers a unique opportunity to network with industry leaders.

Participants will learn directly from leading investors who spend their days looking at education start-ups for an insider’s view on the pros and cons of the different options – public, private, non-profit, public/government – for bringing capital into a venture. They will also gain a clear understanding of what investors look for in a start-up.

The bootcamp provides a rare forum to network with other education entrepreneurs and connect with investors. Attendees will leave the event with a thorough understanding of the funding landscape and some new connections to take their enterprise to the next level.

Topics covered include:
When to Raise Money, How to Raise Money, and From Whom
Attributes of a Great Investment
Investor and Mentor Networking Lunch
Social Impact Investing
How to Seek Foundation and Government Funding
