Businesses require capital to achieve growth. Learn how to identify available capital, find funding options, then get it to grow.
Access to capital is the greatest barrier women entrepreneurs encounter..and if you’re a woman of color, the barriers are even higher. While female founders of color are outpacing men in starting (and growing) companies in record numbers each year, Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors cite “inability to find them” as the number one reason their investment dollars aren’t going to them. The other reason is lack of preparedness and readiness. Well, we find that those theories are garbage! So we’ve created the solution to make sure women of color are not just found, but fully prepared.
Mogul Chix Academy presents Funding School. This three week course is designed to help you understand funding, know what investors are looking for, where to find investors, how to build real relationships that put you in front of investors, how to pitch for funding and how to GET the funding.
Choose from Self Study (6 months) or live (3 weeks) classes. Self Study allows you to go at your own pace with limited support. Live classes allow you to learn in real time with your peers and an instructor who can answer your questions, provide guidance and support. Please check the website calendar for the schedule of classes.
Choose from full pay or three installment payments.
Get Familiar With Funding School
How It Works
3 Weeks. 3 Modules. 20 Topics.
Welcome to Funding School! Funding School is different from the general Academy in that it only focuses on the topic of funding. You have the option to attend live or self study.
Live courses are taught in three-week intervals, three times per year. Sessions are delivered in real time via a private Zoom learning platform each week on Mondays, 10AM – 1PM EST. Attendees attend from the comfort of their home, office or any place with internet access. They have full access to course materials and audio/video replays for the duration of the Funding School cycle. Complete ongoing support is available via phone or email from the instructor during and three months after completion.
Self Study allows you to be more flexible and complete the modules at your own speed for 6 months. Self Study attendees will have access to a private, sequenced on-demand content and materials. There is limited email support until you complete Funding School.
The next live Funding School kicks off August 24, 2020. Register today!
