It might seem almost impossible to raise money for your business during pandemic/markets/oil/currency crisis. If you have an open funding round you might think that everything worst that could have affected it happened at the same time. Just to let you know – you are not alone! Many startups will struggle, it was never easy to close a round, but now it will be harder than ever.
For those who are not planning to give up, we have prepared a list of webinars to help fundraising during the crisis. Hope to see you there!
