Event description

Description

As an early stage business owner, raising capital will probably feel like the magic solution to growth.

But how do you know you're at the right stage to be looking for investment?

Do you actually need the capital to grow at this stage or is there work to be done to get your business investor ready?

Do you understand the risks that come with various funding sources?

How do you even get yourself in front of investors in the first place?

Make the sensible business decision: Join us at Challenge the Funder.

Catapult invites you to explore these questions with our panel of investors from venture capital firms, crowd funding, angel investors and more.

Arm yourself with the facts and meet investors face to face. Throw them your toughest challenge and find out the steps you need to take to get your business funded.

The panel will take you through:

  • What investors are looking for (including what they'll be looking for once they have invested... no pressure)
  • Red flags you should be looking for in an investor
  • How to ensure you are ready for investment
  • The difference between different types of investors - how do you know which is best suited to your business if you couldn't pick one out in a line up?
