The two-day programme focuses on the topis financing and managing growth as well as communicating growth. It was developed in collaboration with UnternehmerTUM, the Center for Innovation and Business Creation at the Technical University of Munich.

Being a member of the network gives you the opportunity to participate in this training programme. The training courses are held in Munich.

Course objectives

The aim of the programme is to inform you about the latest approaches and viewpoints on important growth management and early-stage growth financing issues – as well as related to equity capital and debt capital. Successful entrepreneurs face new challenges of professionalisation and further funding of their companies particularly after the early stage and a closed series A round.

During the two day programme the following questions will be answered: What is the right financing for the next growth stage of my company? Where do I find suitable investors and how do I convince them to back my business? Which is the right communication and how do I develop a story for a strong pitch? There will also be a focus on sales processes, people operations and typical crisis in management.
The programme places special emphasis on sharing newest insights and expert knowledge on these challenges and developing solutions jointly through a peer group learning approach.


The programme uses experienced experts, academics and professional trainers to provide the very latest top quality content on managing growth, financing growth and communication. Besides, the peer-to-peer approach plays a major role: the exchange among participants and with experienced business founders is also a component of the programme. You will hear theoretical knowledge and practical experiences, and have the opportunity to jointly develop solutions to specific problems. The growth-stage training course is thus the ideal means of preparing to successfully raise fresh capital and subsequently grow your business.


Speakers include entrepreneurs, investors, experts and academics.

The training team is drawn from:

  • entrepreneurs and executives who have successfully raised funding for their projects and overcome other challenges along the path to growth.
  • academics, who throw light on the links between practical application and the latest findings from their research projects covering strategy, business model innovations and entrepreneurial finance
  • experienced and professional investors from the areas venture capital, private equity, corporate venture and family officers which are specialised in the support and funding of early-stage companies

Specific information on the speakers will be published shortly before the start of the respective trainings.
