Successful Equity Fundraising for Women Entrepreneurs

When is the right time to raise finance? What are the options and how do you choose the right path? What information do you need to prepare, and how do you present it? How do you speak the language of investors, so you can attract the right backers? And how on earth do you do all this without giving up control, giving away too much of your business, or having it suck up all of your time?

Intelligence Squared is teaming up with Julia Elliott Brown, the UK’s top equity fundraising coach working exclusively with businesswomen, to host an equity funding workshop for female entrepreneurs.

Raising finance for growth is mission-critical for most entrepreneurial businesses. But it can feel like a challenge, particularly if you’ve never raised investment before. And it can feel even more daunting for female founders, who have to pitch in the male-dominated venture finance world where currently only 2.7% of funding goes to women.

This interactive and intimate workshop on March 7th will guide high-growth, female-led potential entrepreneurial businesses through the world of equity fundraising, give expert feedback on your business’s investment potential, and provide networking opportunities with other dynamic female entrepreneurs.

At the end of the day, you’ll have the opportunity to pitch your business to leading investors who are actively looking to back female founders.

Each course is limited to 12 people and will take place at the luxurious Charlotte Street Hotel in central London. Lunch is included.

Watch Julia explain why for women entrepreneurs, learning to speak the language of investors has never been as important as it is today.
