LegalVision is hosting a panel discussion featuring leading VC investors and founders to answer your startup questions.

About this Event

Are you a founder looking to grow and scale your startup? Are you interested in learning more about raising capital, hiring talent and protecting your intellectual property?

The panel will cover a range of startup topics including:

  • The best business structure for a startup

  • Strategies for effective pitch decks

All attendees will also receive a free copy of the updated Startup Manual. The publication is one of Australia’s key startup publications and thousands of founders have downloaded the first edition.

The second edition includes new chapters on equity crowdfunding, later stage funding, insurance considerations and overseas VC financing.
