Smart Funding canvas
Techleap and Golden Egg Check jointly created the Startup Funding Canvas to help entrepreneurs to think-through their funding strategy. This canvas – and related content – can be used free of charge by startups, incubators, accelerators, business advisors, investors etc.
How this site works
For every block in the canvas, there is a short introduction about the topic and a list of questions you should be able to answer to know if you are ready to proceed further. For every block, we also give you tips, tricks and links to other sites that provide tools or interesting content on the subject at hand. After every deep dive into external content, you can return to the canvas and proceed to the next block.
The canvas will help you:
- think about and construct a funding strategy.
- make a choice about what kind of investor(s) you need to talk to.
- get ready for meetings with investors.
- get a practical understanding of your financial needs and how to meet them.
- have a feedback loop to keep improving your funding strategy.
Bear in mind though: this canvas is not going to guide you to one right answer, since a funding strategy is quite personal. But it will help you in asking yourself the right questions and becoming more knowledgeable about the subject of startup funding.
