How To Get Funding For Your Startup

How To Get Funding For Your Startup

This week on That Startup Show we are pulling back the curtain on the mysteries of money – how do you actually get funding for your business?

Getting your startup funded is not the end of the story, it’s simply the beginning of a new chapter.

Brought to you by That Startup Show, Australia’s number one show about startup culture! Weekly episodes premiering on Gizmodo every Wednesday.

From angel investment and seed funding to series A and B financing and even the burgeoning world of ICOs, not all money is equal.

That creates a whole set of challenges, so hosts Rae Johnston and Ben Law are exploring key concepts around creating value in a company once it’s had a injection of funds.

Ben launches the “BenCoin” for real with some help from guest correspondent Melissa Mack from Fintech Australia. Rae then makes her own surprise rival offering!

Jo Ann Corkran, partner of one of America’s largest angel funds Golden Seeds, is here to give her take on startup funding. As an investor in over 40 private companies, she certainly knows her stuff.

Jamie Skella, Horizon State CEO and founder, also joins the panel to give perspective on raising almost two million via an Initial Coin Offering for his democracy tech startup.

Pitchers this week include:

  • Stuart Stoyan, the founder and CEO of award-winning peer to peer lender MoneyPlace.
  • Jessica Ellerm, co-founder and CEO of Zuper, a company helping reunite you with your long lost superannuation and invest it better
  • Martin Karafilis, co-founder and COO of Tiliter technology, which hopes to use AI to help save you time at those pesky self-serve checkouts.

That Startup Show is supported by Launch Victoria, Australian Government and Gizmodo with community support from Girl Geek Academy, Academy Xi, Sidekicker, She Starts and Blue Chilli. Check back every Wednesday for a new episode on Gizmodo.
