The unicorn dream: What’s working — and what isn’t?
About the event
Ominous market conditions have cast a cloud over the unicorn dream, but it’s not all doom and gloom. Customers and investors are looking for a rarer breed of scaleup — ones that can stay strong throughout market turbulence. How are unicorns used to raising big bucks adapting to more capital-conservative conditions? What’s working — what isn’t? This Sifted Talks will review the unicorn model in the current market and share tips for how startups can navigate the next 12 months.
We'll be discussing
- Going on the offensive: How can startups find their path to profitability, while still remaining ambitious and growth-oriented?
- The end of “easy money”: Investor terms might be less favourable — so how can founders raise at a price that’s palatable? What other options do capital-intensive startups have — is it a good time to acquire or find a buyer?
- Navigating a restructure: High-growth startups are having to scale back — how can you communicate cutbacks internally and externally?
