STARTUP FUNDRAISING 101
When I was first raising money for one of my startups I had no clue what I was doing. I had just graduated from university and had never been in contact with an investor before nor did I know how to persuade them or negotiate a term sheet.
As a result, I built a poor pitch deck and ended up without any funding. But a lot has changed since then. I raised millions of dollars myself, invested in companies all around the globe and with BaseTemplates, I have helped hundreds of founders with their fundraising.
This course is my way of sharing everything I know about fundraising & pitch decks so that you don't make the same mistakes I did.
2h VIDEO & ADDITIONAL MATERIAL
In the course I will guide you through every step that is necessary to raise money for your startup.
Firstly, you will learn how investors tick and what a regular fundraising process looks like. After that you will prepare for your fundraising material and find out how to research investors. Then you will learn how to build a compelling pitch deck (a step by step guide for every single slide). Finally you will get my unique insights on how to run a successful fundraising process.
I am Max Fleitmann and after building my first internet projects when I was 13, entrepreneurship had me. I am passionate about building companies together with amazing people and, especially, everything related to fundraising & pitch decks.

No. I was in your exact shoes some years ago and I have created the course in a way that I would have enjoyed it back then.
I will start with the basics and then go into detail so that all of the viewers will get the most out of it.
Yeah. No worries. Just give them your login data and you are good to go.
You have unlimited access to all materials and videos. The videos are around 2h in watch time. You can decide how quickly you want to watch them.
No. It is also for everyone who wants to understand the whole venture world a little better or who just wants to create a good looking pitch deck for their company.
For example if you want to win over partners, present your company on stage or just to put your own thinking into a proven framework.
Not specifically. But of course the course makes most sense in the earliest stages of your company (Pre-Seed, Seed, Series-A). After that you should be familiar with the fundraising process and building of your deck.
No. As this is a digital product you have access to all videos and materials right away. That's why we can't provide a refund.
