Being entrepreneurs ourselves, we felt a gap in the ecosystem in Cape Town for credible, founder-lead events. Events where entrepreneurs can connect with peers and learn from those who have gone before them to scale up their businesses.
This is why we created Founders Events - the originator of our cornerstone events Cape Town Founders Conference, FundRaise Con, Scale-Up Con, and Deep Dive.
Through these events, we will continue to serve the entrepreneurs building great companies in Cape Town. Check out our other events and be sure to diarise.
Raising capital for a private company is a complex process. It can take months (if not years) of a founder's time that should rather be spent growing the company. It is also highly technical and requires a corporate-finance background in order to complete the valuations, financial modeling, due diligence, and other aspects investors look for.
FundRaise Con seeks to share the journey of those who have successfully raised finance. We equip founders with best practice principles that can be used when raising capital and closing that next big deal. Investors themselves, who are doing deals every day, will present and share tips.
Likewise, for investors, FundRaise Con offers an incredible pool of high-caliber founders that are building scalable and investable companies.
