Fundraising & Startups: An Evening with Female VCs and Entrepreneurs

Last night, we were delighted to gather a panel of female investors and entrepreneurs at Barclays Fintech Accelerator space in Whitechapel to discuss the process of fundraising for our members. Here is a brief recap of the event, the take aways of the discussion and short snippet of the wise words spoken last night by some of the greatest experienced business women found in the UK at the moment.

We could not have dreamt of a better panel to discuss the topic of fundraising. Two well achieved women VCs and three women entrepreneurs that either have just closed rounds of investments, worked in venture capital or exited companies.

Investors and entrepreneurs uncovered the veil of how one ask for (a lot of) money to scale a business; what makes a good pitch, how much to raise at first, when to raise and from who.
