Food Startup Venture Fundraising Bootcamp

January 31, 2015


Taught by US Venture Partners Partner and Feeding 10 Billion Founder Paul Matteucci, this intimate, hands-on bootcamp will demystify the process of raising venture capital and give you the tools to go out and raise money with confidence.

A leading Silicon Valley investor and advocate for food system innovation, Paul is working with the State of California and Stone Barns to develop programs for food entrepreneurs. He has been on both sides of the table numerous times as a founding entrepreneur and investor, and now he wants to help you succeed.

Through case studies and hands-on exercises, you will learn the ins and outs of fundraising financials, market sizing, valuation, term sheets and crafting your pitch. You will understand what motivates investors and what scares them. You will leave with a complete picture of how venture capitalists make money and why they behave the way they do.

In addition to getting hands-on fundraising templates and tools from one of Silicon Valley’s top investors, you’ll also get help with your pitch from a rockstar group of food investors, including: Shen Tong of FOOD-X, Franklin Isacson of Verlinvest, Zubin Canteenwalla of NGEN Partners and Trevor Nelson of Alliance Consumer Growth. Learn more about their extensive experience here.
