Welcome to the third episode of the legal guide for startups video series

Without resources to build and market a product, hire employees and pay overheads, it is very hard to make a business successful. So, naturally, fundraising is a crucial part of any business, and especially for startups.

Russell-Cooke partner Guy Wilmot refers back to our fictional client, Gina, who runs her own tech media startup, Streamzer. He runs through the main sources of financing, the technical jargon to bear in mind and a few of the processes business can expect to go through.
