There is a long-term imbalance between VCs and tech founders…. now it’s your chance to turn the tables, as four investors pitch to a room of fundraising founders.
This is your opportunity to get to know the investors, who could work best for you and what they are looking for. Meet and learn from founders who have been through the funding process and how venture capital helped them scale.
Mitali Mookerjee – Founder and CEO of CastRooms, social streaming for live music, raised a pre-seed round of £175K from Angels and FFFs in 2022. Mitali also co-chair at MAP Charity and secured over £2m in 2019 from social investors, Leeds City Council and ERDF.
The reverse pitch starts with short presentations by invited investors. Each is given three minutes to introduce themselves, their expertise and focus. After every pitch, there will be a two-minute Q&A from the host. The event ends with audience questions, followed by networking.
The aim of the event is to clarify the process of fundraising, explain the funding landscape and connect entrepreneurs into the Yorkshire investor community, as well as give investors the opportunity to demystify their processes and explain what they typically look for in making investment decisions.
