How to fund your business ideas

Webinar
Presented by Dante St James

“Chase the vision, not the money; the money will end up following you.” –Tony Hsieh, Zappos CEO

Given the economic challenges of 2020, investors and governments are looking towards new ways to encourage economic growth. New ideas and innovation within existing businesses are not limited to big new technologies or ideas for billion-dollar apps. Sometimes a great idea can spring from a small business. And those ideas can be as simple as finding a new way to develop a new stream of revenue for a single business or a whole industry.

In this free webinar from StartUp U & Lean Startup Labs, you’ll learn:

- What the funding landscape is like in the NT, WA and QLD
- What the funding landscape is like from the Australian Government
- What funding is available from private sources
- What opportunities there are for crowdfunding ideas
- The stages of funding for business ideas
- What is expected of a business seeking funding
