How to fund a food & drink business
Time: 12.00 PM - 1.00 PM
If you’ve never raised funds for your business before, this session will make it achievable and give you a step-by-step plan for funding success.
Paul Grant from The Funding Game will explore multiple, proven ways to fund a food & drink business, whether you’re at the startup or growth stage, and share case studies of successful food & drink businesses that have already achieved this. Some of the routes to funding we’ll cover include: angel investors, crowdfunding, VC, agile funding, cash advances, vendor funding, loans, grants, and more.
By the end of the session, you’ll be able to create your own route map to funding and will have a free practical tool to use immediately to guide you in securing the right capital for your business.
