19 September 2019: The Capital Raising Journey
This week we’re learning about the capital raising journey.
Capital raising is a major hurdle for many startup founders looking to take their idea to market. Obtaining adequate funding from the right sources is fundamental in a startup’s growth journey.

During this short break out, we will maximise your Venture Café experience, with short introductions and new connections!
What you can get out of the session:
(1) we will inform you about Venture Café’s mission, the programming offered at Venture Café and your opportunities here;
(2) you get to share what your are looking for at Venture Café; and
(3) you are potentially connected with the right person that evening or, at least, we can place you on the right path!
Join Conversation Corner this week for a fun discussion on “If you could go back in time, what innovation from today would you take with you?“
6.30 to 7PM
Venture Café Sydney is hosting it’s second kick-starter session to help us give away money (oh...did that get your attention?). VCS is offering a $1,000 grant to an individual or team to make an impact on their community. We will crowdsource proposals from you and facilitate the voting process during our Thursday Gathering.
Thursday Gatherings are the flagship program of the Venture Cafe Global Institute - a non-profit organisation. Hosted by Macquarie University and our partners in Sydney - we offer freely accessible programs to create a platform where students, startups, entrepreneurs, corporates, investors, government and other organisations can meet each other by ‘serendipitous encounters’ and create impact.
