As a life-long entrepreneur, I know how difficult it can be to find funding for a new small business.
When I launched my first tech start-up, I had sold everything in my apartment, moved in with my sister, and found myself sleeping on her nursery floor in order to make my dream a reality. However, when I approached the SBA for a loan, I was turned down because I lacked assets and credit. I wasn’t credit-worthy—a position many small business owners find themselves in. Then I tried pitching my business to investors, but I was turned away because I was pre-revenue and had no proof of concept. I could have easily given up at this point, but I was so committed to my vision. I knew there was a need that my solution could address. After building a customer base on my own, I found myself needing funding to scale up, and again, I received rejection after rejection from banks and investors. I needed to find an alternative to traditional avenues of funding. Soon I discovered the wealth of opportunities that exist for entrepreneurs outside of bank loans and VC investment. I hopped on a 19-hour Greyhound bus ride to Washington D.C. and won my first pitch competition. Immediately, I began scaling.
I know that many entrepreneurs today find themselves in a similar position. Thankfully, there are many opportunities out there that do not require you to be established in the eyes of venture capitalists and loan officers. I want to make sure you don’t miss out on these alternative funding opportunities, which include pitch competitions, accelerators, grants, and more! Along with my Pitch2Win online course , I’ve created two tools drawing from my years of experience: the Ultimate Funding Database and the Ultimate Application Questionnaire, to streamline the process of securing capital for your business.
All the questions you need to prepare for in one place.
This database is an extensive monthly updated selection of pitch competitions, grants, accelerators, and more! This tool can save small business owners hours of searching for the funding sources that fit their business model and play an integral role in putting winning money on autopilot. The overall combined amount of funding in the database currently stands above 110 million dollars, and will only grow as the database is expanded and updated. My goal is to provide monthly updates to the database in order to ensure that all opportunities stay relevant and up-to-date. Therefore, the value that entrepreneurs receive from this tool will increase over time. And at just $25/month for an annual subscription, you’ll quickly see a return on your investment as you start winning money from opportunities you never knew existed!
I know how complicated searching for relevant opportunities can be,
and that’s why I’m committed to providing the best possible user experience for your
