Frequently asked questions

I'm not sure we're the right fit for this program. What should I do?

Best thing is to book a 1-1 with Svenia, can be as short as 15 min and you'll get some answers already. Click here to book a call.

I want to raise less than €1m, can I still join the program?

We’ll give priority to those raising larger rounds as the program has been developed to help those raising €1-5m, but we’d be happy to have a chat with you to get to know you and your company better, just book a call with us (link on the team page).

Is this program open to countries outside the European Union?

Yes! You still need to have a link to the European continent.

I’m not quite ready to raise seed - will you run this again?

We plan to run this again later this year and in 2025, and if you’d like to be notified about future cohorts please submit your details on the contact form below.

How much does it cost?

The program fee is €3000 per company. It's an upfront cost, not a success fee.

How can I apply?
You can apply here. Spots are limited so we’ll be accepting applications on a rolling basis until April 26th. Do not wait until the deadline!
Is the fee per person, or per company?

Per company. You can bring your co-founders for free.

Why a bootcamp?

We’ve spoken to many EdTech founders who successfully raised their seed round and they all say the same thing: Fundraising is confusing, distracting from the real work of building, and frustratingly hard.

Fundraising advisory firms are expensive and ineffective. Brokers take a fat commission. Free accelerators are a huge time investment and often low quality. No one gives you detailed feedback along the way. And it all takes too long.

So we created the Raise: EdTech Bootcamp to simply and speed up raising a seed round.

🚫 No commission, introduction fees or expensive retainers. One affordable, transparent up front fee.

✅ Everything you need to know to raise a seed round in just 7 sessions, with 1:1 coaching to dive deeper into your exact needs along the way.

✅ Timed to give you opportunity to immediately put your theory into practice at our Demo Day on June 13 - just before London EdTech Week June 17 - 21.

🎯 You’re a European EdTech founder

💰 You’ve raised preseed or seed A already, or have some revenue

🚀 You want to close a €1-5m seed/seed B round in the next 6 months

💪 You’re ready to commit to putting the time and effort into your raise

We've partnered with many household brand names to deliver insights and solutions to their problems with big data.

Happy clients

Don't just take our word for it – our clients frequently stay in touch with us and work with us on future projects that require big data insights.

John Bjerrand

I work in agricultural consulting, meaning that we often need to use big and complex datasets to justify expensive investments for our clients. Lilo's consultants helped us see the big picture with their visualization tools and expertise.

Anna Claudio

As the in-house supplier manager, it's sometimes had to understand which manufacturers work best for our needs. Lilo's data analysis helped us identify where we could save and which manufacturers worked the best for us in the long term.
