A New Venture Capital Fund for Australian Start-ups
Today we introduce a new Venture Capital Fund, LaunchPad Capital based in Sydney that provides seed capital funds for early stage ventures across a range of sectors.
As many business owners know it is hard for business founders to raise capital at an early stage in their business when they need funds the most. In response to this gap in the market LaunchPad Capital has been founded to focus on these early stage businesses including investment at the concept stage.
>> You can find out more about LaunchPad Capital at their website, LaunchPadCap.com and their venture capital and seed funding blog for entrepreneurs.
