How to get your business funded!

Are you looking to raise Angel or VC funding?
There is a tried and tested formula to get your business funded. Don’t be left in the dark.
Most new businesses fail during the first year of operation –
and a lack of funding is the most common reason.

To raise money is a frustrating and difficult process that can leave you disheartened.

We created a free online summit for startup founders and entrepreneurs who want to scale their business and increase their chances of getting funded.
We guide entrepreneurs through the key points investors look for in a venture when deciding whether to invest or not.

During this programme, you will learn:

  • What investors look for in a business.
  • Why taking investment is better than taking a loan.
  • How to better define a business proposition with a high growth potential.
  • How to create a scalable business model.
  • How to maximise the return on investment generated by your business
  • How to find the right type of investor for your needs
  • How to connect with and pitch your business to investors
