About FundRaise Con
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.
We had our first FundRaise Con on the 26 of March 2020, a day before Lockdown started in SA but instead of canceling the conference we decided to host the event as a digital conference.
This year we were so fortunate to host the event again on the 25th of March and had over 15 different speakers and almost 200 founders and entrepreneurs who joined us.
