Event Details

This session is part of the TechMeetups Guru Program, a practical 3 month educational and mentoring course to kick-start your Startup. You can choose to attend just this session by booking here, or participate in the full course to receive additional support and mentoring for your company from our Gurus – find out more here.

The decision of taking your startup from early-stage to venture-backed will change the dynamics of pretty much everything in your company. This session will equip you with an understanding of the funding model that are available to startups from crowdfunding and grants to angel investment and venture capital.

Aside from providing you pointers on what Investors look for when evaluating an opportunity, our Gurus will also help you with the following questions:

How do you decide when you’re ready to seek investment?
How do you make the most of your time with prospective investors?
How will the dynamics in your company change with increased investment?



Jeff Lynn, Co-founder and CEO at Seeders 

I’ve mentored for several other startup programmes including Wayra, EntrepreneurFirst,  NACUE and TechHub particularly on equity crowdfunding and seed-stage finance. I’ve  been seen as a global expert in the topic, and have presented not only the US Congress, but  also to UK policy makers and regulatory bodies. I get the space and am keen to ensure  entrepreneurs know the facts about crowdfunding and their options.

What is TechMeetups?

TechMeetups has been setup to create a global network of Tech communities from San Francisco to Sydney. We believe that Tech communities are isolated and great things can be achieved if we connect within our cities and outside our borders. 
Our global community started out with the launch of the London Silicon Roundabout Tech community in December 2010. Following it's success in becoming one of the city's fastest growing groups, we have launched TechMeetups communities in the following locations:

Europe: London, Berlin, Lisbon,  Manchester, Paris, Budapest, AmsterdamStockholm,      Dublin, Munich, Vienna, Barcelona & Brussels 

USA: New York, Dallas, Miami & San Francisco 

Asia: Bangalore, Bangkok, Mumbai & Singapore 

Others : Sydney 

You can see our latest list of communities

Anyone who is thinking about starting their own software or web company and wants to bounce ideas off each other and meet potential partners or investors are welcome to join this group!
Our aim is to connect the various tech communities to help our members network, connect, invest and launch products in the hottest technology clusters. We plan to organise monthly meetups to cover various technology subjects that are of interest to our members.
