Hosted in partnership with the city of Las Vegas International Innovation Center, Founder University Nevada is a yearlong program that will cover the following 12 topic areas: Are You Entrepreneur Material; Legal Setup, Infrastructure, Customer Discovery, Business Model, Marketing, Product Validation, Capital Raising, Company Culture, Customer Success, Grants and Federal Funding opportunities and Compliance.
Participants who attend at least 80 percent of the scheduled events will walk away from the program with a completed deal room, which is a detailed file that includes the required documentation and data to close future investment deals.
Preparing a deal room with the needed documents that an investor will inspect during the due diligence process before making an investment can be a time-consuming and tedious process. However, once done, it is easy to amend and keep up to date. Many newer entrepreneurs do not know what is required for a deal room, so Founder University Nevada includes a specific focus on preparing the documentation and projections needed. The program will better position entrepreneurs to obtain venture capital as well as an increased opportunity to pitch to StartUpNV for investment.
