Capital Education

A guide for startups on raising capital

Capital Education helps startups understand the capital-raising process in NZ and how they can raise the capital they need to create a thriving business - even in the current environment.

Through a series of videos (available below) and an online workshop to bring it all together, leading industry experts share vital insights on raising capital in today’s turbulent world. As well as providing helpful tips on where to begin, these experts explain how to identify and avoid critical fishhooks along the way. 

Such insights are crucial in helping NZ businesses like yours to raise capital successfully in a crisis - and to make the process as stress-free as possible. 

Capital raising during COVID-19 

Suse Reynolds (Angel Association) and David Beard (MOVAC) recently met online to discuss the impact COVID-19 is having on equity investment drivers and behaviours, how long this impact will last, what founders can do now, and how the crisis could impact startup valuations and investment terms.
