Today we’re excited to announce that we’re joining forces with the incredible team at 500 Startups to launch a series of hands-on workshops designed to help entrepreneurs launch and grow their companies.
These workshops will be taught by investment partners and mentors from 500 Startups and experts from the Galvanize network, including:
- Sean Percvial, Partner at 500 Startups
- Will Bunker, Founder of Match.com and serial investor
- Jocelyn Goldfein, angel investor and former Facebook engineer
- Mat Johnson, Growth Hacker in Residence at 500 Startups,
- and many more…
Each session will combine lecture, Q&A, and interactive breakout sessions. Founders should come prepared with specific challenges they’re facing and expect to leave with a toolbelt of tactics to drive their startup to the next level.
The first of these workshops – Startups 101: The Nuts and Bolts – covers all the behind-the-scenes aspects of starting and growing a company, from incorporation best practices, to understanding and managing capitalization tables and more. These are the skills that won’t guarantee success, but will guarantee failure if you get them wrong.
Date: Thursday, August 27, 9:00 – 5:00.
The second of these workshops – Accelerator Prep & Fundraising 101 – is targeted at pre-seed startups and covers everything entrepreneurs need to be ready to raise a first round or apply to an accelerator program.
Date: Monday, August 31, 9:00 – 5:00
We’ll be announcing more startup-focused workshops in partnership with 500 Startups in the coming months. Get notified when new workshops are announced by signing up here.
