Pitching to business angels, meeting with seed fund managers, networking with venture capitalists, nurturing corporate partnerships or applying for state grants can seriously eat into time and energy. Being prepared and equipped with the right knowledge is key and the Dublin BIC Funding & Scaling Series will help you understand what you need to know.
The next Funding & Scaling session will take place in September 2021. Date to be confirmed.

What can I expect from Funding & Scaling?
There are four key elements to the event:
Perspectives from the front line: Two entrepreneurs (one early-stage start-up and one later-stage scale-up) who have successfully secured investment to grow their business will share the story of their journey and offer advice to those about to embark on a similar journey.
Acquiring new knowledge: Each quarter, attendees benefit from the expertise of a guest speaker on a relevant theme such as what a company seeking investment needs to know from a legal, tax, structure, communications perspective.
Have questions answered: An interactive discussion with a panel of investors, successful entrepreneurs and advisors.
Constructive networking: Sticking around at the end is a must-do. This is where the contacts get made and the business gets done.
