Our team of seasoned mentors and industry experts will help improve each founder’s chances of fundraising success by refining their business plans and sharpening their pitches. During the final month of the program, each startup will have an opportunity to pitch their business plans in person to a group of investors specializing in proptech and fintech startups.
