Capital Raising Resources for Australian Startups

The Capital Raising Journey

Start by understanding the journey you're seeking to embark on. Take a look at the timeline below. This is an overview of the capital raising journey and what you'll need along the way.

It might seem like a lot, but don't get discouraged. You don't necessarily need everything. The earlier you are, the less you need.

Keep in mind, your top 3 priorities on this journey are:

  1. Finding the right investor(s) for your business

  2. Securing the right amount of money for your next stage of growth

  3. Getting the right valuation for the stage you're at

Reference Guides (read these)

If you're just getting started or this is your first time raising capital, I highly recommend you take some time to sit down and read these. I know, reading is hard when there's so much to do! You'll thank me later.

Document Templates & Guides (copy these)

As you know from the diagram above, there's a few things you're going to need along the way. It's best to have them ready before you start seriously talking to investors. Otherwise you'll just end up slowly things down.

Mack's Resources

Mack the Moose is a character I made up. He is here to help startup founders with great (and mostly free) resources & tools. I haven't trademarked it. The logo was downloaded from a free site (see design resources). I do this in my spare time, so feedback is greatly appreciated, but any complaints may be sent to Scott Morrison @ Parliament Dr, Canberra ACT 2600.
