How we do it
The Batchery works with Series Seed and A stage entrepreneurs who leverage our core programs, The Batchery Deep Dive and Batchery Roadshow. These programs advance our startups through virtual learning experiences including our online classrooms, and weekly roundtable events.
Over 30 seasoned investors from Sandhill Angels, Sierra Angels, Berkeley Angel Network Duke Angels, Kiertesu Forum, Silicon Catalyst, General Catalyst and more. Each advisor offers a range of corporate leadership experience from: Oracle, Siemens, Cognizant, D2L, Twitter, McKinsey, Dell, Sun Microsystems, HP, Accenture, Visa, Novartis, and much more
The Batchery works with a diverse range of businesses across many industries. We find the best of the existing community and give them the tools they need to thrive. We've worked with over 130 start ups
What makes the Batchery special is our "network of networks." We provide an ecosystem of industry partners, service providers, Investor Advisors, our internal angel group, the Batchery Angels, and fellow startups by your side embarking on the same journey as you.
We consider this to be Start-Up 101. The goal here is to create a compelling deal structure and business plan through a set of easily digested, clearly articulated frameworks that have tested assumptions, metrics, and paths to business success. Using one of the most popular platforms for sharing your business with investors, we help you make the case and become investor ready.
Once a year, the Batchery recruits a very small cohort of five Series A stage startups to embark upon our Roadshow Venture Capital program.
This eight week program provides the opportunity to pitch our Venture Capital partners and form the connections you need to raise your next major round.Apply Now
Meet a few of our start ups
The Batchery process was a perfect fit for Golfkicks – we built the product while
getting high-level guidance on our business story from bright people.
Since pitch day it’s been a fun ride with helpful investors, Shark Tank TV, and the 3rd generation of our product in the market.
I can’t recommend The Batchery enough. The program they have built is great, but what makes it truly special is the network of investor advisors that are always available to meet with founders. During our time I spent countless hours meeting with these investors to get personalized advice which had a significant impact in our company and our ability to fundraise. The advisors were always available when I reached out and this is what is truly unique about The Batchery and truly powerful for any startup.
