Techboard Roundtable Video: the future of funding for Western Australian startups and tech companies

On Thursday 13 December we held our first ever Techboard Roundtable, an event aimed at getting the conversation around the future of funding for Western Australian Startups and Tech Companies into the public arena and highlighting Techboard's Funding Data. We had an awesome panel of ten experts representing the different funding types and a great audience an exceptional facilitator in Stephen Carroll from our partners RSM. Our friend Jurgen van Pletsen of Niche Interview recorded the entire session for posterity.

Over the coming weeks we will be sharing many of the key insights that came out of the conversation but in the meantime, if you want to see the entire video of the event head over to Niche Interview and have a look.
