Challenges in raising capital and lack of access to affordable financing is one of the key issues SMEs and, specifically family businesses, cite as a hindrance to scaling their businesses. It is against this backdrop that ISBI Institute @ Strathmore and I&M Burbidge Capital (IMBC) organized a 2-day Capital Raising Seminar on the 31st of October and 1st of November at the Strathmore Business School. The Seminar was carefully curated to enlighten entrepreneurs on alternative sources of funding as well as matters critical to raising finance. The seminar presented key insights into the capital raising process from leading industry and academic experts to a class of family business owners and executives.
