Are you struggling to get funding for your business? Patrick Edwards of ‘Ubot’ sat down with John Hagerty, Joven Demonteverde and Dan Gregory of the Be Business ‘Ask the Strategist’ team to discuss how to do so.

Background to Patrick’s question:

  • Farmers are having difficulty finding labourers to pick their crop, Patrick introduced and developed ‘Ubot,’ a robot designed to pick oranges for farmers to save farmers the difficulty of finding labourers to do the job
  • Built 10 prototypes that he used to demonstrate to farmers the use of these robots

Patrick wants to raise enough capital to fund his robots but is unsure on how he will be able to do so successfully. John, Dan and Joven provide him with the right financial and strategic advice that will allow him to raise capital successfully.

Different Discussion questions:

  • Angel Investors
  • Funding strategies
  • Raising capital

After John, Dan and Joven provided him with the right strategic advice, Patrick was happy with their responses and when asked if his question was answered he stated “yeah, sounds good.”
