How much time you need to close your round successfully

Don’t believe the hype: it takes time, and a lot of focused work, to complete your round of funding successfully. Yes, we all heard the fairy-tale stories too, but they’re the exception, not the rule. 

‘best time to join our Bootcamp? Typically 6 months before you need to close your round.

Most founders plan too little time, so they prepare and delivery poorly, have no time to incorporate feedback and iterate, and end up with no, or bad, term sheets. Don’t be that founder. 90% preparation, 10% inspiration.

The second best time to join us? Right now.

“I’m so pleased we hadn’t yet started raising investment before doing this programme.”

Our programme delivers

See what they say about us

Jack Bidgood // Thirdfort
Although we had raised funds before, the Fundraising Bootcamp came at exactly the right time for us. […] this took a monumental amount of work but invaluable guidance from Francois and the team. He’s helped us avoid the common pitfalls and his framework is delivered in a no-BS, practical manner. I didn’t think I had the time to attend at first with everything on but each session got better and better and the outcome – $20m and 10x valuation on our prior raise was significantly improved by the guidance and advice of Francois. I’d highly recommend the bootcamp! 

Raised €4.5 million from three prestigious investors after our Bootcamp in London
Vicky Brock // Vistalworks
This was the single most valuable fundraising training I’ve ever had. Despite being a seasoned entrepreneur and having raised before, there was so much I learned here that will completely change the way I run the processes of fundraising. I feel confident I have the tools, templates and processes to now run the most effective fundraise possible for Vistalworks. I urge all founders to invest time in this programme before they start seriously fundraising.
Henrik Hagemann // Puraffinity

Great  for preparing your fundraising materials ahead of going to market, with super fresh data on which VCs are active and what caveats to look out for. Even with institutional investors already on board, I’d highly recommend it as a way to reduce chances of fundraising poorly.


Nils Lekeberg // Enjay Systems
Hey, start-up founder/executive, if you have to choose ONE workshop on how to improve your chances to take your idea all the way to become a successful company – choose THIS one.
