Day 2, Greenlight Guru Stage
11:00 - 11:45 AM

Fundraising strategies are multifaceted (and can be stressful)! How much should you raise? When? From who? What should your pitch look like? But there are many other factors that too many founders – especially women – forget to take into account. Raising capital is about helping your company, your team, and YOU thrive.

In this keynote, you’ll learn from repeat software founder and CEO Tissa Richards how to identify prospective investors that are aligned with the mission of your company and with your leadership values. You’ll learn how to pitch the story of your company not just in terms of financial projections and growth curves, but also how to include the critical components of your company culture and mission, and your leadership non-negotiables.

When you learn how to choose the right investors at the right time with the right strategy, you’ll build a team around you who support your vision and growth – and help both you and your company thrive.
