Event description

Description

Appropriate funding is key to the progress of any organisation. Greater investment in areas such as staff, product development and marketing can lead to rapid growth and even getting ahead of the competition. But not all finance options are good - and not all will be available to you. We will help you to identify your finance options and prepare you and your business to access them.


You will learn:

• How to understand the different types of funding that might be available to you;

• What to look for in an investor;

• The questions that most investors will ask and how to increase your chance of success; and

• How to refine your pitch to make it more impactful;

On the second day, you will get the opportunity to pitch your product to a panel of investors.

Not only will you leave up-skilled and prepared for growth, but you will become a member of our alumni group and part of a strong, diverse peer-support network.


If you're business isn't quite ready for working on funding, check out our Business Model Planning, Branding and Intellectual Property Bootcamp instead.
