"Think Like an Investor"
Raising Capital Deep Dive
CleanTech Future is piloting a program intended to complement existing incubator programs by providing a market-focused perspective on raising capital.
Raising capital from private investors – in general – is a full-time job, one that usually doesn’t end after the first, second or third raise. It is especially challenging in the hard-tech and energy space where the timeline to commercialization and exits is typically longer. Seed stage investors are notorious for being cautious about investing in cleantech for this very reason.
Our program is designed to help innovators develop a programmatic approach to raising capital, using repeatable processes that allows them to focus their time. Further, we can help innovators “think like an investor,” which will allow them to go through due diligence and engage with their investors more efficiently and effectively.
The Innovator Program transpires over seven weeks, during which innovators prepare for due diligence and develop critical processes to manage investor relations, allowing them to begin fundraising throughout the program period.
All the while, CleanTech Future acts as their mentor and provides real-time feedback that investors are hesitant to give.
