Lunch and Learn: 5 steps to fundraising for female founders

Raising investment for growth is something many high-growth potential female founders consider as they move out of the launch phase of their business and prepare to scale. But it can feel like a daunting challenge, particularly if you've never raised finance before.

When is the right time to raise finance? What are the options available to you? And how do you go about managing your investment campaign to get the best outcome, whilst making sure you don't take your eye off running the business?

Join this Lunch and Learn with Julia Elliot Brown, CEO and Founder of Enter The Arena, is the UK's leading equity fundraising expert and specialist coach, working exclusively with female founders. 

Julia will share her expertise of knowledge on what challenges to be aware of when raising investment in a male-dominated venture finance world, how do you speak the language of investors and reach out to people who are most likely to back you.

3 key takeaways for this session:

•Top tips on how to speak the language of investors and craft your pitch narrative to raise your value as a female founder

•How to quickly build your network of the right kind of investors in the right way

•Advice on how to run your campaign, have great meetings with investors, overcome gender bias and close a great deal
