Funding your startup


Reading duration: Many hours
Skill level: Entry

Synopsis: Ok, so what now?

You’ve cultivated a genius idea. You’ve spoken to your customer base; they want your product.
You found the sweet spot at the intersection of creating value for customers and profitability.
But you are not a member of the aristocracy or the child of an oligarch, so you do not have money to splash out on your wild but lucrative idea off the ground.
You need capital. And to obtain money, you need to fundraise.

And how do you do that?
As a pre-seed organisation, we haven’t found the money we are looking for yet but, our friends at AirTree have done a fantastic job of maintaining this list of funding opportunities, at least for Australian startups.
