The Fundraising Workshop by Florian Kandler is a participant highlight in our aws first program every year. Here are some quotes from the founders: "Florian is highly experienced and willingly shares his knowledge, which is extremely helpful," "An extremely great trainer – a good workshop with many insights and valuable learnings," "Very helpful, as it was presented from an expert's perspective, and insights into the mindset of investors are usually hard to come by. He also addressed individual questions specifically." We are delighted that Florian has been part of our program for years and can recommend him at any time.

About my Fundraising Workshops, from managers of startup accelerators

"Florian conducts his "Fundraising Secrets" workshop for our Elevate Accelerator founders. With his own fundraising experience, this workshop is highly practical and specifically helps our teams prepare professionally for investor outreach. Participants are also thrilled by Florian's stories and learnings when he pitched for millions from investors. Florian's workshop consistently receives top ratings among our founders. We can highly recommend his valuable expertise."

Valentin Aschermann
Partner & Head of Startup Services, TheVentury (Elevate Accelerator)

"Florian's workshop "Fundraising Secrets" has been one of the top-rated workshops in our i2c Accelerator at TU Wien since 2017.

"Florian's fundraising workshop is a fixed component within the "Founders Lab" of the Vienna Business Agency. He has a knack for preparing first-time founders for pitching to investors, drawing from his own startup experiences that successfully secured investor funding. His feedback is always on point, and participants can not only gain a new perspective on their individual challenges but also apply these learnings to many other areas. Florian makes the important connections between fundraising, pitching, sales, and startup development very tangible. In 2020, Florian's workshop was once again voted the most popular workshop in the program by the participants."

"Early-stage high-tech startups in our Startup Camp of the SCALEup Incubation Program receive intensive support to transform a startup idea into a scalable business model. Especially in this phase, practical workshops like Florian's "Fundraising Secrets" are crucial and highly valued by our founders. How does an investor think and act? How can I get investors excited about my project? What should I consider in my Cap Table? With valuable, hands-on tips and tricks, Florian introduces our founders to the 'art' of fundraising, ultimately leading to successful investor discussions and investment deals. His workshop is one of the most popular among our founders, not least because of his unique and highly motivating presentation style. We are delighted to have Florian on board!"

5 times thank you for: 1. THANK YOU for your absolute clarity. You manage to organize the chaos in the mind. 2. THANK YOU for your insider tips on how to emotionally round off a pitch. 3. THANK YOU for always taking the time, no matter when or where, and making one feel like they're never a bother no matter what question. 4. THANK YOU for the amazing formulations and brilliantly clever wordplay - I no longer fear critical questions and know how to respond professionally! 5. THANK YOU for providing support even after the fact. A pitch doctor with a lot of foresight, intelligence, and a heart in the right place!

Founder, Seitenbunt

Florian's tips have been incredibly helpful and provided the final touch to my pitch. It's always great to receive feedback from someone outside the company, as company bias tends to grow stronger, and it helps you notice things you would have never seen otherwise. Very knowledgeable, very friendly, and extremely quick with feedback. I can only recommend Florian to everyone!

I had already worked with 2 pitch trainers before I met Florian. However, he still found a few things we could improve. He seems to have a special sense for wording and is always there when you need quick feedback. THANK YOU, FLORIAN!
