Event description


Find out the best funding solutions for your startups!

Entrepreneurs face three main challenges: know-hows, resources and money. They often struggle with launching their products, attracting market attention, finding the right funders whilst facing multiple costs.

Knowing this, we wanted to provide an easy way for entrepreneurs to learn directly from highly sought-out funders and hear the vital advice that is needed to manage these and many other challenges.

This unique event will enable you to meet representatives of debt and equity bodies, and learn how to get funded quickly, as well as will show you the ways to attract loans, business angels, accelerators, investors and VCs.

Is this event right for you?

If you are a business owner, director or startup founder and are looking to attract external funding, then yes!
