On a workshop open to all technology companies, which will take place on 5 April starting at 3 PM at STP Belgrade, Dušica Lukač will give concrete advice to startups on how to stay afloat in a turbulent startup environment caused by significantly reduced valuation, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) collapse and the spill-over effect which is yet to be felt in the tech scene.
As the founder of DL Capital Partners, with years of experience in investment banking, and a business angel investor, Dušica is very well versed in all matters concerning startups and is an excellent mentor. Inspired by interviews with numerous founders who faced difficulties as a result of SVB collapse, she has developed a unique workshop, Staying Afloat, designed to help startups build an edge in the tough startup landscape.
In the first part of the workshop, Dušica will give practical advice:
- How to apply crisis management in startup companies along all verticals and why crisis mode is not good as a permanent choice for startup operations
- Insight into alternative forms of finance, including revenue financing and venture debt, the effect they have on a startup’s operations and valuations and when and how these options should be utilized
- What is down-round and which options are available to startups facing down-round.
In the second part, Dušica will share insights on what the current market situation means for fundraising and what the forecasts are for the next 12 to 18 months, focusing specifically on what the startups in our ecosystem can do and how they can strategically approach soliciting the next round of finance.
