VentureWrench Announces New Online Course – “Raising Capital in a Down Economy!”

Helping Entrepreneurs Navigate Capital Markets in Difficult Times

Silicon Slopes, UT (May 15, 2020) – The VentureWrench™ Startup Community from Enclavix™, LLC today announced its new, online course, “Raising Capital in a Down Economy – Designing the Perfect Investor” designed to help entrepreneurs navigate uncertain capital markets.     

Things have changed dramatically since the pandemic arrived in early 2020. The public equity markets plunged and continue to gyrate.  The “end date” of the economic lockdown is unknown, but the pattern of startup investor behavior is pretty well understood by those who’ve skiied the market avalanche before. Importantly these changes in investor behavior may last 2 to 3 years!

The VentureWrench Team created this new course, Raising Capital in a Down Economy, building on the unique philosophy of “Designing the Perfect Investor”, and adding the latest information on what’s happening in venture capital to help you better navigate today’s challenges in securing capital for your venture.

This course includes all of the content of the VentureWrench flagship course – Designing the Perfect Investor, as well as additional custom content specifically related to the ways things are different in a down or declining economy, and techniques and strategies to help entrepreneurs improve their success!

The Core Objectives are to help entrepreneurs:

  • Understand how things have changed in the private capital markets
  • Understand how investors work
  • Understand the background information needed to be ready to raise capital
  • Understand how to develop compelling tools needed to be prepared to approach investors.

VentureWrench co-creator, Nicole Toomey Davis said, “Current disruptions will continue to ripple through the economy for several years.  Entrepreneurs will have to learn how to navigate the changing capital environment to have a chance at success. This new course builds on both our core philosophy of Designing the Perfect Investor and our team’s experience navigating treacherous capital markets.”
