Back in March, we launched our Virtual Coffee Mornings series to keep conversations running throughout the South West digital and tech community over lockdown. Experienced leaders and founders from Bristol, Bath and beyond came together online to discuss the future of tech, as well as to offer advice for business development and resilience during a crisis. In case you missed the live events, we’ll be sharing stories and insights from our wonderful guest speakers over the course of the next few weeks.

Virtual Coffee Morning #3 was all about coping in the current climate. For the second half of the session, we spoke to two investment professionals with a focus on the digital/tech sector, to hear their perspective on fundraising in 2020. Ryan and Freddie gave practical advice for SMEs and early-stage founders about what to prioritise, before suggesting some starting points and answering questions from the (virtual) floor.
