About this event

This session is scheduled to be held in-person and online, pending COVID restrictions. To join online, please use the digital link in the confirmation email.

Equity Crowd Funding (ECF) is an increasingly popular way within Australia for a business to raise capital at a series seed round. It is gaining momentum as a preferred pathway for raising funds, and for many businesses, it is replacing the traditional wholesale seed round raise via investment by high net worth individuals and family investment offices. ECF has grown over 250% year-on-year with the average amount of funds raised being approximately $1m. Interestingly, many companies which have successfully raise funds via ECF were pre-revenue and early revenue. However, there are some serious hurdles to tackle before a company can raise money via equity crowd funding. It's important to remember that not all companies successfully raise funds, so being equipped with the right information up front is key, in advance of needing to raise funds.

In this session we will cover:

  • What is Equity Crowd Funding
  • Equity Crowd Funding is growing
  • Why choose to raise funds through Equity Crowd Funding
  • What are the benefits and disadvantages
  • What is required as a Founder/ Business
  • What is the process and how long does it take
  • How to get started
  • What is the cost of raising funds
  • Is it worth it
