In this Lunch and Learn, Julia Elliott Brown, CEO and founder of Enter The Arena, discusses the challenges that female founders must be aware of when raising investment in a male-dominated venture finance world. She also explains how to speak the language of investors and reach out to people who are most likely to back you.

Raising investment for growth is something many 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, while making sure you don't take your eye off running the business?

Key takeaways from this session:

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

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

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