This workshop will examine the points of view from both an entrepreneur and an investor who ultimately ended up striking a deal.
Marie Chevrier, a Toronto-based entrepreneur, will share her experience raising capital in Canada for Sampler, a new way to partner with brands to send gift cards and product samples. She will walk you through all the mistakes she made so you don’t make them too and provide a hands-on workshop on how to make a pitch deck that will get you on the path to funding.
Michelle McBane of the MaRS Investment Accelerator Fund, participated in Sampler's fundraising round. She will discuss what she looks for when presented with an investment opportunity and give you advice on what really get’s a VC’s attention.
