Fund the Future VII: Smart Funding Canvas
On Thursday, April 20, 2017, the seventh edition of Fund the Future took place. This time, StartupDelta, Novel-T, Golden Egg Check and StartLife organized a national conference for investors and entrepreneurs in Wageningen. The theme of the day was the ‘Smart Funding Canvas’.
The purpose of the afternoon was to provide feedback on the Smart Funding Canvas to help startups even better with their strategy. “Because building it together will ensure that we are using it together”, according to Kees Eijkel, Director Strategic Business Development at the University of Twente.
The Smart Funding Canvas is developed by StartupDelta and is used for startups to create a funding strategy. Anne-Wil Lucas, Program Manager Talent, Knowledge and Skills at StartupDelta, explains that the Smart Funding Canvas is a tool to improve the matching between startups and investors and the canvas can be used to create a joined learning curve for both startups and investors and therefore help to create ‘an overall pool of smart funding’ as is StartupDelta’s goal.
The Smart Funding Canvas is split up into four stages: Get Ready, Get Smart, Start Talking and Keep Learning. During the workshop, the participants used their knowledge and experience from the field to give feedback and to further improve the Smart Funding Canvas.
It was a successful afternoon where startups and investors learned from each other and shared their feedback on the canvas. StartupDelta will incorporate this feedback into an improved version of the canvas which will be released in June this year.
