Bootcamp live: the keys to successful fundraising in French-speaking Africa

Get legally ready in 3H TOP CHRONO for your next fundraising event in French-speaking Africa.

Are you looking for your first financing package to help your start-up grow? Many people want to raise funds to finance the development of their start-up… But few succeed. Do you think raising funds is a long and difficult process? Are you afraid of negotiations that don’t work out, and that could wear you out? Your start-up is a great success, which is certainly a good thing! But are you wondering how to present it to investors, so that they will help you finance your international development ? And would you like to find a fundraising course to help you?

Who should attend this fund-raising course?

  • Entrepreneurs looking to finance the development of their businesses, but don’t know where to start;
  • incubators who want to know how to support their start-ups, and also understand how a fund-raising process works;
  • people who want to master the fund-raising process from A to Z, and understand the specificities of French-speaking Africa.

You could embark on endless Internet searches… However

There remains a huge PROBLEM...

Where to find information transparently? It’s very difficult to know all the tricks of the fund-raising trade, the investors’ proposals, … And above all, to know what works today, rather than what has worked in the past. The lack of precise information raises further questions:

  • Where and when to raise funds?
  • How to make strategic presentations?
  • How long does the fundraising process take?
  • What are the legal obstacles?
  • How can you avoid lengthy, pointless negotiations?

So many questions that you end up giving up…
It’s precisely to give you all the right answers, that I’ve set up the online training:

Let me introduce myself

I’m Sonia Mavouna, a lawyer at the Paris bar. Also founder of African Legal Factory, the first legal training platform for African entrepreneurs and lawyers. During my career, I’ve worked with some of the most prestigious investment funds on transactions in French-speaking Africa. Do you know Actis, Améthis, Wendel, DPI and Helios? I’ve noticed that lawyers are very expensive inFrench-speaking Africa. There was very little legal support to match the budgets and technological needs of start-ups. So I decided to launch the African Legal Factory to provide entrepreneurs with legal training and contractual support.
