FI Event: Starting Up in Perth and Raising Capital in Perth

Our fiends at the Founders Institute are running this great free event. The speakers include Derek Gerard from Go Capital (invested in Health Engine’s $27M round and iCetana’s $8m round) and Andrew Hal (raised $1M seed for Formalytics and $200M across  variety of start ups).

Perth has a fast growing startup ecosystem, and entrepreneurs here are lucky to have so many resources available to help them in their journey. However, many people don't know about all of the resources available, the differences between them, or what resources are right for them. This beginner fundraising workshop will provide practical, step by step advice, and feature talks from entrepreneurs who have successfully raised money for their businesses, and investors actively funding businesses. Learn expert tips, big pitfalls to avoid, what investors are looking for, how equity works, and more. Join us for a great event!
