TechWeek NZ US Investors

What's it all about?

Fundraising from American investors can be a tremendous catalyst in launching and growing your company abroad. But it can also be a lot like exploring a cave with a candlestick: dark, quiet, and better with a map. 

In this event we'll talk about what we see prioritized in successful rounds and we'll walk through specific elements that separate your business pitch from your investment narrative. You'll learn tactics to reframe your go-to-market strategy to align with fund theses and strategies, techniques for getting useful feedback from investors and moving conversations forward, and early steps you can take to improve your leverage. 

This event will be applicable to all startups and entrepreneurs of all sizes and industries seeking both angel and VC rounds (primarily seed through Series B). Come with questions--and join us afterward on Clubhouse for more conversation, anecdotes, and support.
