Event description

Description

ADV, Runway East and Silicon Valley Bank have teamed up to host an event focused on raising a seed round.

Bringing together early stage investors, venture backed entrepreneurs and early stage founders to explore good (and bad) practice in raising investment. We will explore the options open to companies at seed stage, some key tips from our speakers and things to avoid when raising.

As the amount of investment into companies in Bristol increases and the region grabs the attention of investors from around the country, how can startups best take advantage?

A chance to hear from some prolific angels, microfunds, VCs and institutional investors on what they look for, as well as some helpful guidance from founders who have raised in Bristol and beyond.
