This is the Masterclass for you that want to grow your founder-investor-relationship and hereby level your startup investments with your knowledge and experience; also called investing “smart” money. In this Masterclass we go through how to assess the right founder team for investment and how to build and nurturer a strong relationship in order for you to bring real value and increase the likely hood of the startup's success. We will work with a metaphor on how you should treat it as a marriage; for instance why you should always remember to date before marriage (informal due diligence), how to align expectations, commit for better and worse and why you should do the prenup from the beginning. It will be an active workshop format, where you as participant will get to work with the subjects in groups as well as to network and knowledge share across the group.

                Risk Mitigation

In Partnership with Zero Risk Startup

By finishing the masterclass you will receive a Certificate of Masterclass Completion

Most entrepreneurs fail to raise investment. Why? Investors and companies have no money to invest? Investors and management boards have no skills to support them? The correct answer is – too much risk! The real dilemma lies on the border of potential and reality. Potentially, all the projects are great, but in reality there
are RISKS warning about poor execution of the idea. What entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs tend to forget is that even the best idea in the world is worth zero, when there is zero execution. Business angels tend to analyse the opportunities in a static way (yes or no to the investment). Based on the real life examples, this
short workshop will teach the participants to understand, identify, avoid or mitigate the main risks in any project, which will significantly reduce the investment risk. A dynamic risk mitigation approach towards the entrepreneurs will create benefits for the investors and entrepreneurs.

As any business angel will tell you, exits are fundamental in sustaining your activities as an investor. Making a positive return on investment, however, doesn't simply happen by chance. Planning is key and you should begin early on, even before deciding to invest in a given startup. During this masterclass we will start by covering the different forms of exits and then dive deep into the details of how to strategically prepare and execute them from a legal, financial and team point of view. Our expert mentor, Jesper Drescher, Danish Business Angel Investor of the Year in 2017, will share also his experience in doing 3 different types of exits: IPO, trade sale and management buy in
