Uptima: Funding a Business Application Deadline


Does your small business or social enterprise need funding to scale? Are you wondering how to find the right funding that will support your business’ values, community impact and funding needs? Are you looking for additional support in navigating a funding process for your business? Join Uptima Oakland Accelerator’s 12-week “Funding a Business” class from April 22 – July 8, 2017 at Impact HUB Oakland.

In “Funding a Business”, the fourth module of our Small Business & Enterprise Accelerator, we guide you through a hands-on process of evaluating funding alternatives, crafting your story for potential funders and understanding how to communicate and negotiate with potential funders. We combine in-person classes with one-on-one mentorship, peer groups and an online learning environment to help you succeed. This course is for early stage entrepreneurs looking to fund scalable businesses with positive community impact.

Our alumni say Uptima is a transformative program that walks entrepreneurs through creating, funding and scaling their businesses in bite-sized weekly units, all in a supportive community!
