The capital raising route can be very complex depending on the debt or equity you choose to raise. If you are a successful entrepreneur with a proven business model and are ready to take the next step as you contemplate your capital raising strategy, it’s crucial you are clear on the options that best suit your company.
The Sunday Business Post’s inaugural Growth Capital Summit is aimed at businesses who have been through the early start-up and venture capital stages and now need an infusion in growth capital. You will be an established business that might be expanding your product or service to new markets, developing a new line or even considering acquiring another start-up or small business. As an ambitious entrepreneur with a proven and successful business model, you’ll want to know about the capital raising process and how to get in front of the right investors so that you can take your business to the next level.
The goal of this event is to educate business owners about the available funding options and ease the process of obtaining capital, while showcasing the best opportunities for growth businesses and investors. This is your chance to meet leading investment firms and growth-support organisations, all in one room and all in one day as they share how you can secure funding for an established business with ambitions to grow.
