Best for Founders/CEOs, Co-Founders, Investors, Revenue Leaders
It’s clear that after the investment boom of 2021 and 2022, securing VC funding is harder to come by. Last year was the lowest for venture funding globally since 2018, at around $285 billion according to Crunchbase data.
While down, seed and late stage funding were still fairly robust compared to the 2010s. There are still rounds being raised, but in this market, the approach has changed.
Join our panel discussion with investors from Oxx, Point Nine Capital, and GoGlobal World as we discuss what matters most when pitching in 2024, and what advice they have for SaaS companies looking to raise this season.

About the panel
Last year challenged SaaS companies to build sustainable pathways to growth, and stand on their own financially to be default alive.
But growth requires investment, and for many startups, that means considering raising external funding.
In our live discussion, we'll have a panel of experienced investors sharing insights on what they're currently looking for from founders and how they're making investment decisions.
In this webinar we'll discuss:
- What does the current startup funding climate look like for founders?
- How is raising today different from two years ago?
- What advice do you give for seed vs. early vs late stage founders?
