Jan 22, 2019 v 3.0 - Winter Tour 2019

Over the last few years, we’ve had the chance to host many events that expose founders to an alternative universe where companies they’ve been told can’t be built without massive amounts of VC funding are thriving with little, to no, outside investment. We often start these events by warning attendees that they won’t be able to unsee what they’re about to see. Many leave these events with a whole new perspective on not only what is possible, but why limiting exposure the traditional venture business model is beneficial for founders, employees and the cultures and values they’re hoping to embody with their businesses.

Rather than write another blog post or clever FAQ, we wanted to bring that same in-person experience to those considering investment from

Over the next 2 months, we’ll be embarking on a tour of most major metros in the US (we tried picking towns that were a short-ish road trip away from just about anywhere). Our goal with these info sessions is to share our experiences and motives directly with the Indie-curious. They are open to founders interested in taking investment from and Angels/Funds interested in funding companies the way we do. We’re planning to have some founders we’ve backed, and founders who’ve built and scaled profitable businesses, join us for these events to answer questions and share their experiences embracing the values and tactics we preach.

Fundraising For Startups - Getting Equitable Access To Capital
Nike Valiant Labs

Join us for this power hour workshop focused on helping historically underserved founders get access to startup capital. About this Event


Are you a startup founder who wants to learn more about getting access to capital to grow your business? Or have you already gone through a painful process raising capital and want to do it with more confidence, competence, and control the next time around?

If that sounds like you, you’re going to love this one hour workshop!

Legacy fundraising relies on access and entitlement, rather than skills to win. So what does that mean for those of us who have been excluded from those networks? How do founders with diverse backgrounds, ethnicities, genders and identities gain access to capital?

In this one-hour workshop, you’ll discover:

The #1 barrier for founders to get equitable access to capital (and it’s probably not what you think!) The “normal” raise process vs the effective raise process The top 3 things you can start doing immediately to build confidence, competence, and capability for your raise The Equity Capital Collective™ (EqCo - pronounced "echo") offers consulting and training for early and growth-stage startup founders. Our mission is to enable and empower entrepreneurs who have been excluded from access to capital, networks, and resources, such as women, people of color, and LGBTQIA communities.

Our founder community learns a unique tactical and strategic fundraising methodology that develops critical skills and insights and addressing the fundamental internal barriers associated with an unequal experience of entitlement.

Founders gain confidence, competence, and capability as they lead their raise, break open critical influence networks and deliver innovative ventures that embrace a broader community of stakeholders in both investment and returns.

Together, we’re insisting on a more equitable landscape of opportunity and access for a greater diversity of founders.

Drinks and snacks will be provided.


All founders and future founders who are considering raising capital for their startup.


This event is free of charge.
