with Jack Delosa, Capital Raiser, Educator and MBE Managing Director
In 90 minutes, learn the three tools you need to prepare before pitching and, more importantly, learn what NOT to do when speaking to investors. The Master Business Bake Up series is a cooking class... for business builders. We teach you a recipe that you can 'cook' on the day, in under 90 minutes, or take back to your business and implement later. [LIVE EVENT]
Business owners, startups, angel investors, capital seekers.
Lack of access to capital is one of the most common barriers to growth among SMEs, startups and entrepreneurial innovators. However, capital raising in Australia market is generally regarded as neither art nor science. It's packed with grey areas, gaps in education and few channels to connect with investors.
HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:
Learn systems and acquire tools to simplify the capital raising process. The most ofted cited challenge by Australian investors is that most businesses they see are not suitable... “the companies are unprepared”. Are you prepared?
WHAT IS STALLING YOUR GROWTH? [WHY]
Australian venture capital firms currently have access to approximately $2.5 billion in available funds to invest into private companies. In 2010, angel investors – private investors who typically invest less than $1 million – invested over $1 billion into 5,000 Australian companies, an average investment size of $200,000.
Who said that there's no capital available in Australia?
Only 1% of investors say now is not a good time to invest, with the majority of investors indicating the main barrier to investing into private companies is “finding suitable opportunities”. The most common challenge cited by investors is that most businesses they see are not suitable... “the companies are unprepared”.
