Ort: Online Event
Sign up via Eventbrite!
It’s a Rollercoaster and we know it but how to survive this ride?
In our Panel Discussion we are talking about main fundraising topics from the perspectives of female founders and investors. We will gain special insights across the DACH ecosystem and openly discuss challenges and potentials in the fundraising process.
What are underestimated topics while fundraising that founders are rather prepared for and how to get from investment story design to closing the deal?
Even if the actual environment is challenging, are there any special opportunities currently in the market?
Let’s debunk myths out there and do real talk!
