Central Working White City
Translation & Innovation Hub (I-Hub)
80 Wood Lane
Whatever your Friday plans are, Thursday will have to be meeting other like-minded entrepreneurs, startups and business in the science, tech and creative space at our monthly drinks meetup.
For February 2019, we are delighted to partner with Central Working, where we will be joined by Carlos Eduardo Espinal, Managing Director of Seedcamp – Europe’s seed fund. Carlos will launch our new ‘Money Talks’ series and be speaking about his book ‘Fundraising Field Guide‘.
Who should attend? The Fundraising Field Guide was written to help early-stage tech startup founders decipher and navigate the fundraising process. It provides an overview of the soft and not-so-soft challenges you will need to prepare for as part of your fundraising journey, including things like reaching out to investors, dealing with rejections constructively, preparing materials and financials, understanding valuations and deal terms, and how to manage the legal process. If this sounds like you, please come along!
