"Fundraising Insights Straight from the Trenches" by Tony Aguilar

Successful fundraising is hard. 

Every entrepreneur believes their idea deserves funding yet the process often feels like a big catch-22... no investor wants to jump in unless others have already given funds or the numbers are a no-brainer.

Investors don't give out money easily so what does it take? 

Join us for an interactive Q&A with Tony Aguilar, Founder and CEO of Student Loan Genius, on his recent experience getting 3 million in seed funding. 

• Building a compelling pitch and the path to honing it

• Getting investors to help you, even if you get a "no"

• Framing talks with angel investors versus institutional VCs 

• Generating investor momentum to close your round

This is going to be less presentation and more of an honest talk so come on out with you questions!
