Event details

The Region Alliance for Interconnected Startup Ecosystems – RAISE – project aims at developing a new and sustainable integrated support framework to foster startup growth and scale-up across Europe. It targets companies that have already achieved first results, possibly supported by regional programmes, and are now aiming to grow. In this framework, the project partners are required to implement several pilot actions, among which there are training, mentoring, and networking sessions that will help startup promoters to get in contact with the appropriate mentors and trainers who can help them gain access to their target markets.

Objective: The coaching session aims to provide valuable insights and practical solutions for start-ups to improve their business models and partnerships. The session will offer personalised coaching and interactive learning activities to help participants understand key concepts and develop their skills.

Target Audience: The coaching session is designed for start-up founders and representatives who are looking to enhance their understanding of business partnership actions.

Approach: The coaching will revolve around a total of 4 online workshops of 90 minutes each. The structure of each workshop will be a sum of a theoretical session and a practical one.

Workshops (free of charge):

  • October 18, Workshop 1- The Lean Canvas
    One of the main failures for early-stage startups is that there is no market needs for the products/services they are developing. Thus to avoid falling into this statistic, it is important for early-stage startups to explore the Lean Canvas as a strategic planning tool.
  • November 6, Workshop 2 – The Unique Value Propositions Canvas
    The first goal in adopting the Lean Canvas is to reach the Problem-solution fit which is basically when a startup is developing a solution for a specific need(s) for the customers. In order to reach this goal, startups need to use the UVP as a strategic tool.
  • November 21, Workshop 3 – Approaching risk capital investors
    High-growth early-stage startups need money to scale and boost their activities. It is important that the founders understand which are the kind of investors in the market and which is the best way to approach them.
  • December 5, Workshop 4 – How to master your pitch
    The first approach to investors is the key to increasing the odds of getting the funds. Thus, preparing a great pitch is crucial to achieve this first step.
