Event description


Are you having trouble getting funded?

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

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. Learn from the experts who get entrepreneurs and business owners just like you funded.

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 funding 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.

Four Part Agenda:

Expo: Meet and talk to the experts at the stands who can discuss how your business may take advantage of different funding opportunities. It is these experts who can help you to resolve your funding challenges. Start the process right there and then discussing the needs of YOUR business.

Consultation: If you're serious about funding this is your chance to get the funding process started on the day. These advisers are neutral. They don't have a particular funding strategy or product they want to sell you. Instead, these experts will take a holistic view with you to help you obtain funding.

Networking: Don't forget the room is full of owners and founders with high growth businesses just like yours. They are people who are going places and are keen to get there sooner. Bring plenty of business cards -- you never know who you'll meet.
