Making Venture Capital Available to the Next Generation of Startup Founders

Throughout the years, venture capital has been reserved for a small group of founders, with the right background and the right network. Still today, VC backed startup founders don’t represent European diversity. This is why we at Fast Track Malmö launch the Fundraising Bootcamp for Underrepresented Founders. We want to democratize access to startup capital by opening up our VC network and sharing our knowledge on how to raise VC funding. 

The Fundraising Bootcamp for Underrepresented Founders is a one week event taking place online and in Malmö in September

Join us 13-17th of September for workshops, investor mentorship and pitch feedback. Radically available with no application process and no interviews. 

Monday to Thursday sessions will take place online.

The Friday full-day session with dinner on the 17th of September will be in Malmö, where those available to join will meet on site. 

Join us if you have:

- A digital, software or hardware product

- A scalable business model

- An MVP, users and/or a website

- Based in Europe

- At least one co-founder that identifies as a person of color, female, LGBTQ, disabled and/or is a refugee

Signups close on the 5th of September.
