Learning the fundamentals of fundraising.

In February, we welcomed eight companies to our winter Fundable cohort. Over two months, the entrepreneurs going through the program focused on learning potential funding pathways to raising outside financing and what it means to become an investable venture. They learned to create a data room, a compelling pitch deck, and how to produce a clear funding strategy.


The program 8-week culminated in a company showcase for investors and AO partners where they could put their learnings into action. Here’s a look back on the event in photos.

The companies presented their businesses in a 5 minute pitch, followed by Q&A from a panel of local community members. Plus, thanks to our friends at Lawson Lundell, we were able to give away a $5000 cash prize to one lucky startup who won the People’s Choice Award. 

Pulse, a startup working to build a wearable navigation aid for the visually impaired, took home the prize. Each navigation aid is equipped with an array of sensors that detect surrounding objects and vibration motors to provide haptic feedback. With the addition of their AI, Pal C, Pulse hopes to bring independence and convenience to everyday life.
