WTIA Founder Cohort program helps 20-25 venture-scale, seed-stage startups from Washington state grow and scale over the course of 6 months. We and our partners will provide founders with a roadmap that will help guide them through their next milestones as they navigate increasing revenue, securing investment, and growing the team.

Specifically, founders in the program will learn:

- How to fundraise (running a fundraising process, term sheets, cap tables, etc.)
- How to manage a board of directors
- Revenue forecasting
- Corporate governance (accounting, legal, etc.)
- Customer development and go to market strategies
- product development best practices

Our goal is to help invest in our ecosystem and use our connections, sponsors, and partners to support the next generation of companies via mentorship, education, coaching, and connections. We also want to connect early stage entrepreneurs with similarly staged peers to build cohorts of connected founders that grow together.

The program is completely virtual and kicks off with a bootcamp spread out over 3 days focused on all things fundraising. From there we’ll have workshops each month on stage appropriate topics that you can implement in your company right away.

This program is free to apply for, free to participate in, and there will be no equity exchanged.
