The Founders Academy is a programme built by founders for founders to improve skills, fundraising and startup progress.
Areas we cover:
Pitch Decks & Pitching
Vision & Mission
Problems & Solutions
Growth & Traction
Legal & Accounting
An intense schedule over a 6-week period that covers the core areas that support with fundraising and upskilling for founders. You will graduate with a pitch day in front of a room of investors.
Skills, Tools & Strategies
Building and running a startup requires a unique set of skills. We kick the tyres on your business and help you to understand where to focus your energy and how to operate in a way that will accelerate your success.
Fundraising is hard. Really hard. We help you carve out the time to do it well, avoid common pitfalls and understand the right approach for you and your business.
Pitch, Story & Narrative
The stories we tell matter more than anything. They help us win our first customers, employees and investors. We help you reimagine your business, understand your vision and how you present it to the world.
“This programme has already helped us distill the essence of our business. Very highly recommended.”
“It’s been a great experience… the programme broke down challenging topics like ‘mission’ & ‘story’ into manageable chunks.”
“Reading Together is considerably stronger as a result of the programme.”
“As a sole founder, without the resources to have my own dream team just yet, it has been enormously valuable…”
