Day 5 Modules

Designed by Shaw & Co’s funding experts, the Funding Academy’s Day 5 syllabus will deepen your knowledge, capability and confidence to help you get investment ready.

Day 5 – Learning objectives

Day 5 is the final day of the programme and all modules focus on the pitch. All of the modules to this point will have helped you to hone your proposition, financial numbers and pitch deck.

Pitching With Confidence introduces you to the psychology of pitching. You will understand the science of presenting which includes how you use your voice, body and behaviour to articulate your proposition to an investor.

The Route To Investment module expands your knowledge on the numerous pitfalls many business leaders encounter on their funding journeys. You will gain the best guidance on how to avoid common mistakes, setting out your funding timetable and how to close the deal.

The programme concludes with a highly engaging Mock Investment Panel. You will be put under pressure in a realistic pitch situation to practice everything you have learned on the programme. You will receive constructive feedback and this experience will help you to hone your pitch presentation to showcase your business in its best light.
