Capital Raising in the Changing Environment
After 2 years of record-breaking investment levels in NZ and globally, the market condition is beginning to change. This brings both challenges and opportunities, and almost certainly imposes the need for founders and business leaders to do things differently.
To assist start-ups with their capital raise in this changing environment, we are running a webinar where our investor speakers will share their insights about what this "new normal" environment means for start-up founders, how to best prepare for raising capital, and key things they are looking for when making investments. We are delighted to have 3 fantastic speakers, from Angels to VCs joining us for the webinar.
We are accepting donations towards Waikato Women's Fund for the event. The Waikato Women's Fund helps to create opportunities for women and girls in the Waikato. We love what they do and believe that aligns well with our purpose at CFO 4 U.
