Basics of Fundraising Online Programme
Only 8.3% of startups are successful in getting funding, says an annual report on Indian venture capital and private equity on startups released by IIT Madras. Mathematically it will be even less than one startup from every 10 startups. And for the next round, again the numbers are same. Rather negative i.e. 9 out of 10 funded startup fails to raise second round of funds and end up shutting down the venture.

About the instructor
Truly an "All in One Course", Strategically Developed, Very Useful - Thank You So Much
Course content and explanation was excellent. It will help to all understand the fundraising process...
Probably the best ₹777 I have invested. I am about to finish module 1 of the course and the content is excellent. Best topics are chosen and in the best order with very good explanation and real-life examples and cases. His personal takes are just the icing on the cake.
The best course I have come across. The efforts he has put in this course is Worthy investment. I will support this course as long as I can.
It gives deep insight into the startups and source of knowledge where we can skill ourselves and it breaks every wrong nosiness and belief of fundraising. Thank u sivesh
Worth more than a lakh rupees in market, salute to you Sir... This initiative will definitely help to improve the literacy level of startups in India..
Know yourself ( Venture ), fundraising will be much easier. What I learned from this course.
Thanks, Startup Monk. It will help a lot of First-time founders. I highly recommend this is course
I am more confused as I came to realise my venture doesn't fall into the startup category and chances of fundraising is next to impossible :(
I like Sivesh Sir videos more informative and easy to understand than the Warton Business school professors. It is all you need to know about fundraising. And the best was the disclaimer that Sivesh sir gave in the first video. The dark, brutal truth of the startup world.
It is simply worth awesome, sivesh gi is a dedicated teacher. Fee is peanut for this course.
Best learning course of Fundraisin all the concepts are covered in details its worth any time .... excellent work sivesh sir really thank you and appricate all your hard work
Being a newcomer, I couldn't have hoped for a better start to the Startup world!
Sivesh is great... He is just so patient ( one should see how he takes up questions in weekly Q & A sessions and in WhatsApp groups ) and full of enthusiasm to help out people in this startup ecosystem. The interaction with fellow entrepreneurs, mentors, and Investors made this course interesting.
Satisfied with the course mateial.
The templates provided are awesome and saved almost 50k of my money ( it is like a blessing at bootstrapping level )
They should also connect us to Investors. It will help to raise funds.
Running my startup for some time. And some of the words mentioned in the course, I heard for the first time. Good Learning
In some Videos, there is a sound problem. Other than that It is good.
I greatly value it. I have attended other online programmes/ courses also but this one is more exhaustive. A must for founders, not only for Fundraising but this will also help you in the understanding of how to raise a Startup.
A great session by sivesh! He is just so patient and full of enthusiasm to help out people in this startup ecosystem. Loved listening to his practical experiences and insights. Difficult to find people with such great clarity and experience.
The course was so helpful.
I got to know about some new terminology which is very important.
Got a basic idea about funding.
Sir answered all questions with patience and explained in easy way(This is so helpful as we are new we will be having so many doubts and he is experienced)
The extra material and access to videos will be helpful at anytime.
I recommend this course to all.
Thanks for your time SIVESH sir :)
