In a Q&A style chat with Zara Crichton (Executive Director, Venture Café Sydney), Callum and Zara will touch on the key hurdles for investor readiness including:

  • Is the problem you’re solving real, in desperate need of a solution and you’re solving it in the smartest way?

  • Is the business able to measurably demonstrate traction?

  • Business model: can you clearly indicate how your business does/will generate revenue in a sustainable way?

  • Can you paint a picture of your unique intellectual property assets - including the intangibles?

  • And last but not least - you! What are the key attributes investors are looking for in the people they invest in?
