Most start-ups launch with funding from friends, fools and family. This Brew Your own discusses where to find funding for your start-up, when to say no and where to turn, when those close to you run out of money and patience.
Free of charge webinar. Public funds or private investors. Equity or soft money. Business Angels or banks. Finding money to run an early stage start-up is full of complicated terms and assorted players. Join this Brew Your Own to meet the largest public start-up funder in Denmark and one of the largest associations of private investors. You will also hear personal stories from two start-ups who have survived several funding rounds and lived to tell the tale. The event is free of charge.
