All About Fund Raising

A business without a funding source will flounder under the weight of its own debt. Funding is the fuel on which a business runs. A business can take different avenues to attain funding, and more than one option can be used. The chosen funding will depend on the business' desire to be in debt, how solvent the business owners are at the time the business is founded and the amount of money a business will need to launch and maintain itself through a variety of events.

With 3 editions of Headstart’s "How to Start a Startup" National series behind us covering, we turn our attention to another vital issue, that the team and the founders at multiple stages of their startup journey face, The Art and Science of Fundraising.

To combat this and help our fellow entrepreneurs, the theme for the May edition of the 6-month long series is, All About Fund Raising. This edition will see Venture capitalists and investors come in and talk about how startups can raise funds, what are the basic requisites for startups to pitch for funds and much more.
