By the end of this course, not only will you understand all the financing options available to you as a creative entrepreneur, you’ll also be able to develop a unique funding strategy for your business that leverages all your strengths as a creative business owner. 

You’ll master pitching and negotiation techniques that will allow you to walk into a room of investors with CONFIDENCE. And together, we’ll build decks and presentations that tell your business’s story and highlight the unique creative talent you bring to the table.
