VIRTUAL EVENT - This event is part of the LIFT programme aimed at residents in the boroughs of Camden, Hackney, Islington & Tower Hamlets.
About this event
Startups hear a lot from fundraisers/VC's about how to raise money, but we rarely hear a detailed, practical account from the founders themselves. Meet Nana Parry, Founder & CEO of Tectonic, & learn all about the experience of raising Angel Investment!
Nana Parry has raised over 300,000 in angel investment across ventures from 12 different investors over the years, as well as helping other startups raise angel money too. Like many others, Nana was not in a position to have financial cover when raising, & so had to be very practical & strategic in his method.
Nana is keen to 'pay it forward' & help others make it in their own way now, having raised himself & successfully emerged the other side. He'll be sharing his practical & scientific approach to raising in an upcoming video series, taking you step by step through best practices & ways to approach it, & myth-busting the many common misconceptions there are about raising investment.
In this special taster session for Capital Enterprise, Nana will take us on a whistle stop overview of the process, covering:
The process of how he raised over 300K of investment & helped others raise ten's of thousands
How to find angel investors when you don't know any
Why your pitch deck isn't as important as you might think & when to use it
What to do when you get a 'No'
How to value your company when you have no idea how much it's worth
What kind of terms you should be looking for at an early stage
This is not another session on the perfect pitch deck or ideal team, but a practical step by step approach to actually getting that money through the door!
We will be running our LIFT Access to Funding programme in January 2022. Applications open on November 24th 2021.
Nana is the founder & CEO of Tectonic, which helps businesses & the not-for-profit sector understand the true needs of their customers & users. Having navigated the technology/startup space for 8 years starting various online businesses & web applications, Nana has successfully created six figure revenue generating companies, raised hundreds of thousands in investment & built some amazing teams. Previously, he worked at large tech companies delivering multi-million dollar IT projects, & running business units of over 100+ people. He also hosts a podcast called Everyday Startups, interviewing entrepreneurs, investors & experts in the startup world.
