Capstone – Project

Fundraising Strategy Analysis and Preperation

A Collaboration Between

Project Synopsis

Sonia is a serial entrepreneur that recently launched Mixed Hub and is looking for help cultivating the vision and growth strategy, which should ultimately inform her fundraising strategy. The goal of this engagement is to help Sonia position her company for success in her fundraising pursuits. She would ideally like help identifying similar organizations that have successfully raised funding in the past and the process/strategy they used to get there. It would be most helpful to understand the structure of that financing and what the financing was ultimately used for. Ultimately, Sonia wants to be better prepared for her fundraising efforts. This likely includes detailing the product, traction, vision, team, and financials.
