AANZ Runway :: Auckland 2024

Join us for our inaugural Runway event of 2024, set to take place in Auckland on May 8th. It promises a day brimming with invaluable insights, networking opportunities, and connections with both founders and investors. Geared towards early-stage startups and seasoned investors alike, Runway offers a unique chance to glean wisdom from those deeply entrenched in the startup ecosystem, sharing their firsthand experiences.

Delve into three immersive sessions designed to equip you with the knowledge needed to navigate the challenges of fundraising. Come prepared with your burning questions as our experts are ready to provide answers and guidance on:

Navigating Investment in Growing Industries: Discover strategies to distinguish yourself amidst competition and capture attention in burgeoning sectors. Uncover the key metrics necessary to garner genuine traction and stand out in a crowded marketplace.

Sustaining momentum and profitability during uncertain market climates – Learn techniques to sustain momentum and bolster profitability in challenging market landscapes. Explore actionable strategies to maintain growth during tight market conditions and identify pivotal factors under your control that can be optimized to enhance profitability.

Exploring Alternative Investment Avenues: Delve into the spectrum of investment options and their suitability based on your company's maturity and stage. Evaluate the criteria each funding source seeks and the strategic rationale for engaging with each potential funder.

The day culminates in a dynamic speed dating event, affording every founder the chance to hone their elevator pitch and engage with each investor present. Amidst the buzz of conversations, this exercise proves immensely beneficial in refining your message. Following this, unwind and continue your discussions during networking drinks, offering a more relaxed environment to follow up on connections made during the speed dating sessions.
