About This Event

Launching a startup is more affordable than ever before due to the rise in cloud platforms, no-code tools, and lean prototyping. But how affordable is affordable? Can you launch a startup for under $5000? And once launched, what’s the best way to fund your startup? VC, bootstrapping, equity crowdfunding, grants – or even NFTs? We also know that a tiny percentage of traditional funding goes to women, so how can female founders take control and make things happen their own way?

Join General Assembly and Atto, a startup school and micro fund for women founders, in this deep dive into startup funding pathways and early-stage startup costs.

During this event, Atto alumni and Atto’s founder will share how they started small, rapidly tested, and earned revenue in the first few months of operation by focusing on what’s important. Atto encourages founders to use no-code tools to build lean MVPs and test their ideas – before hiring expensive agencies or looking for a technical co-founder.

Our panelists will share key insights into launching startups, valuable resources, budgeting tips, and the various funding pathways you can take in the early stages. You can expect to leave the event with an understanding of how to fund the launch of your startup leanly and what traditional and alternative options are available once launched.
