CLOSING THE GAP: EQUITY INVESTMENT TRAINING COURSE
Seeking funding for your film or TV project? Interested in pitch training with equity investors? Want to learn how to close your project’s budget gap?
Closing The Gap is a training course for film and TV producersrun by creative industries financing consultancy peacefulfish (Berlin/London/Brussels) in association with the pan-European investor network Media Deals (Paris), the Apulia Film Commission (Bari), and the Mallorca Film Commission (Palma).
The course trains producerson how to identify, approach, and pitch to private equity investors, teaching business skills that producers can use to find new sources of financing in the current financial climate. Investors participating in the training both as experts and on the pitch panel include:
> venture capital fund managers
> business angels
> representatives from business angel networks
Through the course, producers learn innovative financing and transmedia marketing and distribution strategies, prepare business plan content and pitch presentations targeted to an equity investor audience, have a range of networking opportunities, receive extensive one-to-one feedback and pitch coaching and—at the course’s conclusion—pitch their projects to a panel of investors.
Producers should apply with a specific project.
The course fee is 900 euro, which includes two on-site workshops, Skype consultations with the course tutors, and lunches and some dinners for the attending producer during the two on-site workshops.
Scholarships are available from peacefulfish.
