12 November 2012

A Deep Dive into Start-up Capital – Workshop for Start-up Entrepreneurs

The ICEHOUSE is offering start-up entrepreneurs the opportunity to attend a full day workshop to get an in-depth overview of the world of start-up capital from Bill Payne, one of the US’s most decorated Angel Investors, and leading New Zealand start-up investors, entrepreneurs and experts.

With this workshop The ICEHOUSE is addressing a strong demand from start-up entrepreneurs for more education and guidance around the capital raising process.

“Often entrepreneurs depend on external funding to accelerate growth of their start-ups” explains Ken Erskine, Director of Start-ups at The ICEHOUSE. “Many of the start-ups we are working with find this process challenging and are very interested in learning more about the different options, along with the process to effectively secure funding. With this workshop we are addressing this demand by offering start-up entrepreneurs the chance to learn from leading international and local experts.”

The workshop will give attendees a comprehensive overview of the world of start-up capital, including:
• The Capital Food Chain: The various sources and purposes of capital for start-ups
• The Ecosystem: An insider’s look at who is who in NZ
• The Angel Perspective: Insight into what they are looking for
• The Pitch and Process: What it takes to raise angel capital
• Presentation Critiquing: Review and discussion of presentations from the 2012 NZ Angel investment Showcase
• The Fine Print: The legal nitty gritty behind start-up investments

The workshop, which will be held on November 22nd at The University of Auckland Business School, is part of the programme around Bill Payne’s third visit to New Zealand. Having invested in over 50 start-ups and advised many more, Bill Payne is an expert on start-up capital. He is in New Zealand to share his experience and knowledge with NZ investors, entrepreneurs and the wider start-up community.

Bill will be supported by leading New Zealand experts in the field of start-up capital including Chris Twiss, Director of the Seed co-investment Fund; Alexei Dunayev, founder of Transcribe Me and Chris White, founder of BigLittleBang, two entrepreneurs who have raised significant funding from angel investors around the world, Ken Erskine, Director of Start-ups at The ICEHOUSE and members of the ICE Angel advisory board and other Angel investors.
