As an impact entrepreneur, venture capital is often not your idea of a sustainable investor. Blitzscaling and hustle porn might create different mental images than what they intend to describe in the unicorn lingo. Fortunately, there are actually many alternatives at your disposal and in this course, we provide you with an overview of alternatives that have been around for a while as well as brand new ones offering a more inclusive and sustainable narrative of investment and company growth. We help you figure out which alternative fits you and your company best and help you get started on your fundraising strategy with expert content, exercises and tools.

What you'll learn 

  • A comprehensive overview of the investment alternatives for impact ventures

  • Expectations of the different fundraising alternatives

  • How to figure out which fundraising option will work for you

  • How to build a fundraising strategy

  • Fundraising is hard work, but not impossible, you can learn what is needed​

Testimonials

 
Bekah & Marlo - Rebekah Clark.JPG

"This is a brilliant introduction to alternative finance opportunities. As a first-time founder, the finance aspect of the business seemed hugely overwhelming. Esme and Yonca do a brilliant job of breaking the different options down, outlining the consequences to consider, myth-busting, and presenting everything in clear, plain language. Highly recommend!"
