One of the biggest challenges you’ll face as a founder is determining the best way to fund your startup. You’ll need to decide whether to go it alone without the help of outside capital or secure investment from venture capitalists (VCs) who offer funds, expertise, credibility and networks in exchange for equity.

The funding path you choose will greatly affect the way you structure your business operations, how fast you grow, the size of your team and long-term strategy, but what is the best way to determine which option is best for you?

Join us for this expert panel discussion as we unpack the benefits and drawbacks of bootstrapping vs VC investment and share tips about how to determine the best funding route for your startup. We’ll be talking to:

Hugh Stephens - Founder & General Partner @ Galileo Ventures, Founder @ Sked Social
Hannah Yan Field - Partner @ Folklore VC
You can expect to learn about:

The pros and cons of bootstrapping vs VC investment
What it’s like to be a founder funding your own startup
Things to think about when securing venture capital
We can’t wait to see you there.
