Studies show that education tools, community support and access to information about capital opportunities can play an important role in the growth of a founder’s business. As such, we have established a community built around these three pillars to help female founders get funded faster.
No. Regardless of what stage you are at in your business journey, there is much to learn about funding options that will likely benefit your growing business such as lending, crowdfunding, government grants, competitions, angel investors or venture capital. Alongside these funding options, our Masterclass Experts and Investors-in-Residence will talk about the growth required to move between these funding options. Our community also includes our Entrepreneurs-in-Residence as well as our female founders which gives you the opportunity to connect directly with peers and learn from those who have ‘done it before you’.
This online course was developed specifically for female founders and aims to demystify the funding process. The course covers the funding options in Idea, Early and Growth stages of a business and also teaches you what to prepare, what to expect and next steps for each funding option. This is all supported by downloadable worksheets.
Each month, Next Chapter Raise features a different industry expert to host an online Masterclass. These Masterclasses offer members a deep dive into topics around fundraising and capital options and best practices as well as the requirements, processes and challenges involved.
We also spend time meeting and talking to experts as well as listening to our Member challenges in order to find the right expert each month.
These are successful investors and entrepreneurs who are providing their experience and insights in support of the female founders in our community. You can find out more about the Entrepreneur-in-Residence here and Investor-in-Residence here
At Next Chapter Raise, we are focused on teaching female founders how to get funded faster. Of course, we support and work with strategically aligned, nimble organisations that offer various entrepreneurship programmes, but as Carla Harris, ex-Chair of the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) states “Our studies show that emerging companies that start with a strong foundation of capital are far more likely to be successful than those who are poorly capitalized.”
Therefore our goal is to provide education through our Masterclasses, knowledge-building events, online resources, discussion forums, newsroom and podcast. Plus, we also provide a peer community ready to discuss these topics and, where available, share relevant funding opportunities and news. Our experience shows this combination can make the difference for a female founder in building a sustainable business.
No. However, we have built relationships with investors and capital organisations so that funding opportunities can be shared within our community via our Funding Calendar and other communications. Members can then decide if they would like to apply.
We have built relationships with investors and capital organisations so that public funding opportunities can be shared within our community via our Funding Community and other communications. Members can then decide if they would like to apply. We also host private events attended by investors that will give members a chance to build their investor relationships. Obviously, we cannot guarantee that the investors you meet through us will invest in your business but we’ll teach you how to navigate the oftentimes confusing funding process the investors will likely impose.
