Globally, just 0.05% of startups launched manage to raise venture capital.
Considering how important innovators are to creating prosperity and how critical raising capital is to their success, we are piloting a new webinar series, What Investors Want.
The What Investors Want webinar series is a collaboration between the Christensen Institute and the University of Toronto Entrepreneurship. In each session, Efosa Ojomo, Director, Global Prosperity, Christensen Institute and Efosa Obano, Program Manager, Black Founders Network, U of T Entrepreneurship, will interview different investors to pull back the curtain on how they think about and make investment decisions.
Our pilot series will kick things off with the following three sessions:
- November 16, 12 PM EST featuring Lise Birikundavyi, Black Innovation Capital
- November 23, 12PM EST featuring Clemens Feil, International Finance Corporation
- November 30, 12PM EST featuring Kola Aina, Ventures Platform
