Community meetup: Alternative Financing for Startups

TQ Community Meetups aim to strengthen our community by bringing together like-minded people to share experiences and grow together. This time around, we've invited Gijs Hoonhout, the Head of Marketing of an international FinTech scale-up and part-time Startup Advisor of multiple innovative companies who will take you on a journey through the modern-day financing world.

When thinking about funding the growth of your company two options often come to mind: banks and venture capital. These “default” options each have their pros and cons, but what are the available alternatives? What is happening in the financial market? And what makes an (external) investment really worth it? Get the answers and start fuelling your growth by attending this meetup!

The talk includes today’s financial landscape and three real-life business cases from existing companies, with room for questions from the audience.

The event will be most relevant for business owners and decision-makers. Join us for an evening of inspiration!
