Understanding Your Competition

Founders must recognise that they will face competition in various forms. From small-cap stocks to the rise of cryptocurrencies, understanding these hurdles is essential to navigate the investment landscape successfully.

ASX Awareness

Awareness of the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) and its dynamics plays a crucial role in the capital raising process. Knowledge of market trends and investor behavior can provide valuable insights for startups seeking investment.

Small Cap Boom

The recent boom in small-cap stocks has created both opportunities and challenges for startups. Recognising the potential and pitfalls of this trend is vital for those looking to raise capital in the current market environment.

Cryptocurrency Bull Run

The cryptocurrency bull run has captured the attention of investors worldwide. Understanding how this trend impacts the investment landscape can help startups position themselves strategically in the market.

Focus on Attracting Strategically Relevant People

Attracting the right people who align with the startup’s vision and goals is a critical aspect of building awareness. Strategic alignment with investors, partners, and stakeholders can strengthen the capital raise position.

Work Hard to Build Your Company Awareness

Building company awareness requires hard work, dedication, and a clear strategy. Focusing on creating a strong brand presence and engaging with the right audience can lead to successful capital raising.


Building an awareness funnel is essential to strengthening a startup’s capital raise position. Understanding competition, market trends, and focusing on strategic alignment are key components of this process. The reminder that quick capital raising is not always the most effective approach resonates with founders seeking to make their startups well known.
