Progression past LEVEL 12 // Fundraising unlocks one of The Startup Collaborative's most differentiating value propositions: Investor Road Shows. Our team scouts funds - from seed to series A - that have thesis's suitable for our fellows. We canvas the Midwest and identify a market ripe with capital that aligns with our deal flow. Then, we coach, prep and score meetings on behalf of our founders. Piling into a van, AirBus or really anything that will take us, we hit the road and host up to 12 one-on-one meetings between venture capitalists and our founders.
Rarely do we brag, but we're pretty darn good at it. It might be one of our key secret weapons we coordinate on behalf of these fellows.
