Finding Funding at Innov8 2014

Sourcing funding is often one of the most challenging tasks for entrepreneurs. In an effort to inform entrepreneurs on the various opportunities and developments in the South African funding landscape, the Innovation Hub hosted an event dedicated entirely to this topic.

Venture capitalists, investors and funding agencies were all present together with a number of entrepreneurs who were interested in learning about fund raising trends and processes.

Innov8 was held as panel discussion that consisted of 4 investors all representing different organisations and 3 entrepreneurs, each at varied phases of their businesses.

An insightful event that offered valuable resources and information to both the investors and entrepreneurs.

Andile had the opportunity to speak to some of the panelists after the event. The clip is available below:
