Webinar summary

Over the last 11 years, Steve has watched the innovation space transform from a handful of operators, to now where it feels that at every turn there is a new incubator, co-working space, VC, fund or accelerator launching.

Steve has watched his clients raise hundreds of millions of dollars in that time. He has seen the success stories and the mistakes made. His goal is for you to learn from that experience.

The majority of capital still comes from HNW investors, family offices, VC and PE firms. CRIISP’s goal in providing this session is to assist you in putting your best foot forward in getting access to this capital. It gives your innovative ideas the right foundations to scale. In 60 minutes, Steve will provide founders with unique insights on the capital raising process and best practice when working with investors.
