Access to Finance (JHB)
Entrepreneurs need capital to seed and grow. However, accessing capital is not the simplest thing. Whether securing public grants and loans, pitching for private equity or venturing the world of alternative finance is a matter of opportunity, choice and pertinence.
This three-day training will highlight all the available sources of funding per incubation phase and will provide insights on the what and the how of specific funding opportunities. Trainees will learn when and how to facilitate governmental funding versus business angel investment, when and how to facilitate access to bank loans or whether to endure in setting up a crowdfunding campaign. Participants will learn what it takes to support a company in becoming ready for investment.
