Description

You are BRILLIANT.

Your business idea just might be the one that changes the world as we know it and becomes a multi-million dollar brand. But the reality is you don't have thousands of dollars - yet alone millions saved up to get your biz off the ground and present it to the world. You're willing to bootstrap it but even bootstrapping takes some cash.

or...

YOU'VE STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM NOW YOU'RE HERE. But you need to get to ----> THERE.

You've built your business from the ground up by your bootstraps but now you've hit a ceiling. You've proved the concept, built the product, got the customers and made some money but in order to grow your business to its potential you need to expand your team, up your marketing budget and invest in new systems and technology to handle business operations at scale. That means you need an infusion of cash that your current cash flow can't handle at the moment.


DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE.

THERE IS NO SHORTAGE OF CASH.

You have to tap into the appropriate vehicle and resources for your business and its goals. There’s a lot of ways to run a successful fundraising campaign....and there are a lot of ways to mess it up.

That is why the SECURE THE BAG UNCONFERENCE was created.

Regardless of whether you're attempting to raise just a small amount of startup cash or millions of dollars from investors, this event has loads value for you.


SECURE THE BAG UNCONFERENCE EVENT NYC


SECURE THE BAG is an event for entrepreneurs from the concept to scale stage seeking to capital to fund their businesses. The content shared is tested and proven strategies and resources for leveraging traditional and non-traditional funding opportunities.


THIS IS NOT ANOTHER PITCH FEST.

The speakers are industry experts with a proven track record and the capability to deliver actionable content, tips, and strategies that you can implement immediately.

The talks are strategically capped to 15 to 18min time spans, to ensure speakers get right to the meat of their presentation and you can have an impactful experience. No overwhelm of information or long drawn out presentations. Nah.

The fireside chats & roundtables are REAL.

No fluffy, surface level, "I'm so wonderful" nonsense. The questions asked to our featured speakers are provided by YOU, the attendees - because that's what an UNConference is all about. YOU.

And don't leave this event with just intentions, leave with a PLAN OF ACTION.

Join one of our expert-led or peer to peer mastermind sessions where you have the opportunity to put create a fundraising strategy, RIGHT ON THE SPOT.

You will receive a SECURE THE BAG Workbook with a worksheet for every session so you can be sure to record the main points of each presentation.

Unlike conferences, there will not be a sea of attendees to get lost in. We've capped a number of attendees to ensure an intimate, impactful experience with substance.

....and of course, there will be plenty of time for networking and fun!

Regardless of whether you're attempting to raise a small amount of startup cash or millions of dollars, this event promises to provide loads of value by providing you with not only the WHAT to do to solve your fundraising challenges but the HOW.

Imagine that?

The HOW without 'upgrading' to the umpteenth level and an investment of thousands of dollars.


Here's a sampling of SECURE THE BAG's Hot Topics.



CROWDFUNDING & EQUITY CROWDFUNDING

There's more to having a successful crowdfunding campaign than just posting up your project on consumer - driven platforms like Kickstarter, IndieGoGo and iFundWomen. What if I told you that successful campaigners can spend up to 3 months preparing to launch their campaign? WOW, right? I know. Crowdfunding can be the sole way to raise funds for your business or it can also supplement investor and/or lender commitments especially for amounts under $1million. But there is an important strategy to it that our experts will share. Plus the contributions are non-equity.

Entrepreneurs looking for fundraising efforts to surpass $1 million may want to consider equity crowdfunding portals. You'll learn about both options so you can choose the best method for you and learn what it takes to have a successful campaign by experts who have done it themselves. Our experts have raised 5 - 7 figures via crowd funding for their businesses.



PITCH DECKS & COMPETITIONS

Corporate companies and a host of organizations are holding pitch competitions and challenges where you can win $5k to $1million cash for your business for presenting your business idea. Competition can be fierce so first, learn the anatomy of a WINNING PITCH by an expert who has won over six figures in cash and services for their business. Additionally, learn how to craft a Pitch Deck and/or Investor Proposal that gets you closer to a YES. Before you ever get an audience with an Angel Investor, VC firm or high net worth individual it's likely they will see your pitch or deck, make it memorable.


ACCELERATORS & INCUBATORS

Ever wonder what the inside scoop is with programs like Y-Combinator and 500 Startups but think you don't have what it takes? Learn how to obtain cash investments, equity-free grants, free and discounted resources for your business and access to mentors, education and more through these programs. Think programs like these are only for people who code or super techy companies? Nope. There are programs available in most industries and globally. Learn more at the event.


CRYPTOCURRENCY TOKEN SALES

A token sale, also known as an ICO (Initial Coin Offering) is the latest way startups are raising millions of cash. Thus far in 2017, companies have raised over $180 million in ICOs, compared to $101 million all of last year, according to Smith + Crown, a blockchain research, data and consulting group. Learn about the cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, an industry just getting started but is said to be one of the most impactful. Plus get understanding regulations, and how to raise funds via cryptocurrency and if this method is even a good option for your business.


SPONSORSHIP & CORPORATE PARTNERSHIPS

Learn how to attract sponsors and corporate partners that can equate to millions of cash and revenue for your business. You'll learn the DOs and oh so many DONTs many business owners make the mistake of doing causing them to lose out huge opportunities. Our expert has solidified millions of dollars in cash sponsorship.


FUNDRAISING FOR YOUR SOCIAL ENTERPRISE, B-CORP or NON PROFIT

As a social entrepreneur, funding is one of your greatest challenges. Discover a new twist to traditional funding as well as new non-traditional funding options. Learn how your business model or lack there of may be stunting your goals and what you can do about it. Did we mention this very event will benefit a social mission?
