What we did

We ran a panel discussion for 50 brilliant female awardees of the Women in Innovation Award.

 

The goal of the session was to help these female founders understand VC, if it was a good fit for them and what other alternatives exist at different stages of their funding journey.

One-to-one coaching

For anyone taking our workshops or Alternative Funding School for organisations, this one-to-one coaching support with Esme will help individuals find the funding fit for them. During these coaching sessions, participants can ask questions and dig further into specific funding topics.

Our founders left with plenty of information and food for thought

“Esme delivered an engaging and informative workshop on alternative fundraising options for one of our cohorts. She introduced the group to options that were appropriate to their stage of growth and completely demystified the process of raising angel investment.” 

- Steph Lau, FounderVine

Esme gave everyone the confidence to look further and to take those initial steps.

“Esme ran a workshop for our programme for a group of new creative technology businesses making very tentative moves towards investors. Esme took them through an understanding of how the landscape is indeed more complex and also more interesting than first appears.”

- Gill Wildman, Upstarter

Esme's workshop was incredibly engaging and practical

"She helped make sense of the diverse funding options for social ventures. Highly recommended for anyone looking to navigate fundraising."

- Maiko Schaffrath, Year Here

It was a brilliant, informative and engaging session that we all loved!

“Considered Capital helped Allia through our Impact Accelerator Programme by helping our founders understand different ways to raise funds that suit their visions and strategies. We look forward to having you again as our guest speaker, Esme!”

- Kathryn Ore, Allia
