Start-ups about working with us ...

As founders and like many other founders out there, we found the world of raising VC capital a confusing and challenging experience, with many people willing to offer the advice but very few with the knowledge required to give it. It was refreshing to work with Anton, Cassian, Simon and the team at Howzat Ennea since they have a deep expertise of the VC world having sat on both sides of the table. The time spent with them provided a huge amount of clarity for us, and I would imagine that it would do the same for many other founders..

By attending the MasterClass we gained a 360° degree view on the topic of fundraising. In Particular, recommendations on how to optimize the structure of very early and very late funding rounds will help us to avoid expensive pitfalls in the future.
