 Trouble getting funded?

Don’t want to put your house on the line, but still need capital?

Unsure of the difference between private equity, venture capital, angel investors and what role each plays in the funding eco-system?

Want to tackle crowd-funding but not sure where to start?


You need to be at Challenge the Funder!

Come and meet the people who actually decide the fate of your funding. Whether you get a yes or a no. Challenge them on the stage.

Come and learn from the experts who can teach you that it’s not a matter of being funded or not. It’s a matter of how and it’s a matter of who.


Not only will you be able to meet these experts face to face on the day, you will also find out what are the right next steps for you to take to get your funding requirements sorted. Whether it’s $10,000 or $1 million you need to grow a small business to a bigger business or to an empire.
