Dear Readers,  

Welcome to the August 2019 edition of Funding Strategies Connect!

During the past month we have conducted a number of Strategy Sessions for our clients. The purpose of these is to be clear on the business model moving forward as well as putting a Roadmap together to address business issues and determine critical programs of work that need to be undertaken for the company to meet its objectives. 

Once these initiatives are determined, the company can then understand the timing, resourcing and funding needed to implement the plans. 

Funding Strategies can help with these management systems as well as create and implement a Funding Strategy to support the Roadmap or business plan. 

If you would like to have a confidential discussion on your strategy and options please contact us

Flora and Mark recently had the opportunity to present at the "CRECCHKI International Market Talk: Australian Properties Update". We were delighted to receive their thank you note after the event!
