10 Ways to Finance your Business


What’s the market like for raising funds for your business?  The Churchill Club has been asking this question for 10 years.  Certainly principals such as control, ownership and risk never change,  but there are constantly new ways of going about it.



Existing players are also changing the way they approach investing and  the cost of money is fluctuating as tech is becoming more appealing to a market no longer focused on sending iron ore to China. Certainly the American model of Seed and Series A etc, doesn’t match the reality of financing in Australia, so what is our reality?

In a tenth anniversary blockbuster event for the Churchill Club, they decided to put on a huge panel with all the options so we can get a comprehensive view on the options available to Australian business, without the filtering and obfuscation of corporate advisors.
