Propel FastTrack is a series designed to support Edmonton-based, early-stage, tech-enabled or uniquely innovative startup companies/founders by giving them the skills and strategies they need in as little time as possible, so that they can focus on building their company. Rather than touching on a range of different topics in a high-level way, we’re focusing on one essential area at a time.
In the Propel FastTrack: Finance series, participants will spend five weeks gaining the tools needed to strategically manage their finances and propel their businesses toward sustainable growth. Additionally, they will learn about dilutive and non-dilutive funding, improve their readiness to apply for grants and engage with potential investors, along with enhancing their financial awareness.
