Funding and venture capital – join our experts to get your startup on track to success

Every startup faces the challenge of initial funding to get going, and again at various stages in the early years.


But going straight to a bank for a loan is almost never the answer, and there are various options for startups to obtain funding.


Our free StartupSmart webinar, Funding and venture capital – expert advice for ambitious startups, brought to you by DFK, looks at the key issues of funding for startups.


With an accounting expert from DFK, accompanied by a company founder from the recent StartupSmart Awards 2015, this webinar will explore:


  • When is the right time for funding?
  • What are your potential sources?
  • What is Venture Capital and are you ready for it?
  • What are some of the dangers of funding, and how can you avoid these traps?
  • And much more.
