Thursday, March 25th, 2010 - Wholesale Investor
Capital Raising is back on the agenda for entrepreneurs with over 800 people registering to attend this Saturday's Capital Raising Conference in Sydney. This event will see expert speakers from PWC, DC Strategy, Dominet, Wholesale Investor, Australian Association of Angel Investors, Azure Group and Argyle Lawyers outline the end-to-end process to raising capital for any business venture.

This overwhelming interest reflects a significant rise in business confidence levels, with savvy Australian business owners looking to capitalise on the strengthening of the economy in order to fund the growth of their businesses.

The current interest in raising capital is in stark contrast to a few years ago.

“In 2008 we ran a similar event and attracted only 80 people. On Saturday we are going to have up to 800. This tells me that entrepreneurs are confident that they can raise capital now”, says event owner and Keynote Presenter Reuben Buchanan.

“It suggests that the gloom and doom of 2009 has been replaced with steely optimism and desire for positive change in 2010.”

On the back of this increase in business confidence levels, Buchanan suggests investor sentiment is also incredibly high right now.

“Our latest national investor survey of High Net Worth, Private and Professional investors revealed that over 94% of investors believe now is a good time to invest.”

“Combined with the revelation that over 66% of these investors are seeking to invest in private companies, this provides one of the best times in history for private companies looking to raise the funds they need to expand and grow to their full potential”

The Capital Raising Conference 2010, hosted by Wholesale Investor and MBE Education, will cover every aspect of the capital raising process from valuations, to sourcing investor networks and ‘pitching’ a deal.

Attendees also receive relevant documentation which is essential to raising capital in Australia.

The Capital Raising Conference 2010 will be held on Saturday March 27 at the Wesley Centre, 220 Pitt St Sydney.
