The Foundation Course -
​​​​​​​The Fastest Way to Create a Pitch to Investors


Entrepreneur's challenges:


Challenge #1 – Fundraising takes so much time!
If you could raise the growth capital your business needs today, how much revenue could you add to your top line? Now think about each month that goes by and you are losing that potential revenue.  How much value could this course provide in terms of revenue if it cuts your fundraising time down by one month? How about 6, 12 or 18 months?

Our Foundation Course is the fastest way to create a pitch to investors because it is designed for efficiency and uses a building block approach. Most entrepreneurs complete the Foundation Course in 2-4 weeks (including multiple in-person feedback sessions with their mentors).

In comparison, many entrepreneurs struggle for 12-24 months on their own to create an effective pitch to investors using inefficient learning materials or inadequate free information on the internet.

Challenge #2 – Getting rejected sucks! 
Angels invest in ~2.5% of the companies they evaluate, and Venture Capital firms invest in ~1.0%.

Our Foundation Course improves the odds of an investment by teaching you how to create both a “Read Me Pitch” and a “Listen to Me Pitch” and how to use them both effectively.

Since this is such an important concept, we included it in our FREE mini-course called, “Why is the Read Me Pitch more important than the slide deck.”  Click this link to check it out: Link to FREE mini-course  


Challenge #3 – You need equity capital to grow (or to keep the company alive).
If you need capital to grow then fundraising is the most important job of the CEO/entrepreneur because it can't be delegated or outsourced to someone else.

In some situations fundraising is the only way to keep the company alive, which can be overwhelming for the CEO/entrepreneur who shoulders the responsibility for it.

The CEOs/entrepreneurs who volunteered testimonials for our website have collectively raised over $50 million for their businesses. 

Our Foundation Course teaches fundamental principles of pitching investors and has been be used:
1) by first-time entrepreneurs and repeat CEOs.
2) for companies of different stages.



How this course is different?


1) Other books and learning materials focus only on the slide deck. 

So they do not improve your odds of getting an investment!  What good is that?

Since they focus only on the slide deck, they don't teach you how to:

  • develop and synchronize the two pitches; or
  • use both pitches effectively.


2) Other books and learning materials are not organized for learning efficiency.

Our Foundation Course is the fastest way to create a pitch to investors because it was purpose built for learning efficiency. It uses:

  • step-by-step instructions ("paint by numbers")
  • a building-block approach 
  • a learning framework that is unique in the industry

As the CEO, you have the highest opportunity cost of time of anyone in your company. Learning efficiency is important because you cannot delegate or outsource fundraising to someone else.

Also, your business has an opportunity cost of time.  If you could raise the growth capital your business needs today, how much revenue could you add to your top line?  Now think about each month that goes by and you are losing that potential revenue. 

How much value could this course provide in terms of revenue if it cuts your fundraising time down by one month? How about 6, 12 or 18 months?


3) Other books and online resources typically focus on early-stage startups.

Our Foundation Course teaches fundamental principles of pitching investors that can be used:

  • By first-time entrepreneurs and repeat CEOs.
  • For companies of different stages.

Our solution:


This online, self-study course teaches you how to create both types of pitches you will need to be successful:

  1. Read Me Pitch (investment summary)
  2. Listen to Me Pitch (slide deck)


You will follow our "paint by numbers," step-by-step instructions and learn:

  • how to create both pitches quickly and efficiently using our building-block approach.
  • about your investor audience and how to "speak their language."
  • basic presentation skills you need to pitch investors. 
  • how to make your "Read Me Pitch" and a "Listen to Me Pitch" work together.
  • ways to practice and avoid costly tactical mistakes. 


The course includes:

  • 9 video lessons
  • Templates for both types of pitches
  • Over 15 pages of e-guides
