Raising capital in this environment  - our 6th Early Stage Investment Series workshop co-hosted with AANZ.

Raising Capital in this environment can feel like a bit of a roller coaster with different views on how the market might react to the changing conditions. Markets aside, the process and strategy for raising capital should not change regardless of what market we are in.

In this session we will cover capital raising from pre-Seed to Seed and all the way through to Series A and beyond. We will inject into the discussion the importance of founders building a pipeline of investors and investors building a pipeline of companies, the importance of building and nurturing relationships and how you go about this in a value creating way. We will also explore what a deal needs to look like at each stage and particularly in the context of the changes have occurred in the macro environment over the last 6-12 months.
