Insights into the funding landscape and what you can do to prepare to pursue the options.

Hear first hand from a panel of experienced business leaders as we discuss:

  • The options available for funding your business’ growth, particularly in the COVID-19 new normal
  • The unique attributes and benefits of each type of funding
  • What type of funding might best support your business, and
  • How you can best prepare your business to pursue them.

As we continue to operate in the COVID-19 new normal, funding options will continue to change and likely contract or become harder to obtain, so being aware of all the options will help you make more informed decisions about your business’ viability.

On the panel we have a range of leading experts from different segments of the funding landscape:

  • Jane Laverty of Business NSW will share information about government grants and support available, including initiatives announced in the recent Federal Budget;
  • Craig Barker of Southern Cross Credit Union will share a bank’s perspective, and what you’ll need to have in place to obtain bank funding, as well as information about the Government Guarantee Scheme;
  • Marc Sofer of Byron Ventures and Byron Angels will share the angel and equity investor perspective, including what types of businesses suit angel investment and how to go about preparing for it and engaging with angel groups.

Sourdough Business Pathways purpose is to support you in business with our network of experienced Mentors, and more than ever we want to offer our resources and support to you at this time. To sign up for a Mentor, click here.
