The Cost of Capital - Adelaide
Technology companies should resist unnecessary dilution of equity - we're gathering to emphasise the cost of capital to founders and teams.
About this Event

Welcome to The Cost of Capital - a Tractor Ventures production visiting multiple cities as part of an AU/NZ tour.

Too many tech company events speak about the financial factors that founders and teams should consider in very vague terms, so we are gathering for a short presentation, fireside chat and ask-me-anything gathering, focussed on the cost of capital to tech companies.

A key decision that affects success for technology companies is having the capital to grow, plus factoring in the expectations attached to that capital.

What is the right way for you to scale your companies growth? When is the right time to fundraise? Where should I efficiently allocate that capital in this game of operating a tech company? What should I consider when thinking of debt or equity funding?

These questions and more as part of the evening - a chance for you to interact with a number of Adelaide's best startup/scaleup founders, operators and investors.

Who is this for?

All welcome! You can expect a large amount of SaaS company leaders, tech ecosystem builders, investors, early stage startup founders and more. Again, all welcome!
