Ouh, you mean the video lessons? They’re shorter than half of the working day (>3 hours) ;)
Honestly, it’s for selfish reasons.
In the past few months, a lot of founders wanted to join my mastermind group, because their biggest challenge has been finding and getting connections with investors, but it didn’t fit into their budget.
That’s why I made something affordable for everyone, to kickstart their fundraising process, hoping that this will help you raise some capital, and then come into my premium mastermind program.
We wanted to make this program affordable for every founder that wants to build an investor network around them, therefore it’s a No.
Iskender allows direct contact only to his premium mastermind students.
This is only for serious and committed founders that want to take action today and start gaining traction in their fundraising journey.
If you’re thinking of testing the waters and you’re not fully committed - it would make sense to ask about the refund policy.
A lot of my premium mastermind students have used it, and it works every single time, and thus we don't offer a guarantee because the only reason you wouldn't want to keep it is that you didn't use it.
Click on the “Enroll Now” button, enter your payment details, and we will send you access via email after successful payment.
The only reason it wouldn’t work is if you don’t use the knowledge you obtained from the course.
No! Iskender doesn’t offer introductions, referrals, or anything of that sort. That would neither be a serious business practice nor would such a “paid” and “super superficial” introduction help you at all.
In The Fundraising Coldstart Iskender focuses on teaching YOU the skills and insider secrets on how to find and connect with investors, as well as how to get warm introductions to investors from others.
