WineDown: Funding Strategies for Impact Entrepreneurs
Change starts with individuals who have a great idea and the drive to execute it, but businesses need smart funding strategies in order to grow.
In January’s WineDown, we’ll explore different ways that impact entrepreneurs can fund their venture.
You’ll meet selected participants of our Investment Ready Program and have the opportunity to ask questions about their ventures and their current growth strategies. Participants will hear from our friends at Wirtschaftsagentur Wien who will share more information about the ongoing grant opportunities for social startups as well as our partners at Erste Bank und Sparkasse.
Come join us for our monthly Impact Hub community gathering to catch up with your fellow members (or if you’re new, simply get to know our community) and have the opportunity to learn about funding and financing strategies for impact entrepreneurs.
