Tide Talk #1 – Top Tips for Fundraising with Greg Marsh

At Tide we are on a mission to help founders, business owners and sole traders focus less on tiresome administrative tasks and more on building successful ventures.

With that in mind, we created Tide Talks, a series of events dedicated to helping our members grow their businesses. Early in 2017, at a pop-up store in Old Street, east London, we invited industry experts to share their wisdom and advice on a range of topics.

For our first Tide Talk, we were joined by Greg Marsh, a former venture capitalist, co-founder and chief executive of home-rental site Onefinestay. Greg has raised over $80m of investment for Onefinestay and is one of Britain’s most highly regarded digital entrepreneurs.

Greg shares his top tips and strategies for fundraising while recalling personal tales from his time as an investor. He admits raising capital can be “hellish” but offers insights on how to overcome challenges and subsequently “change the world” with your business.
