Scale-Up Sessions are workshops curated by Endeavor Nigeria for high-impact companies and their founders. This session was run by Victor Basta (Founder & Managing Partner, Magister Advisors).
Victor has extensive experience advising on over 120 transactions in the last 25 years (including Cellulant's record-making $47.5M Series C round), building three successful corporate finance firms, working as a Professor of Entrepreneurship at INSEAD.
The session focused on the fundamentals of executing a successful capital raise, including:
- How to create value for both founders and investors of growth-stage companies
- Navigating dilution and optimising founder equity
- Positioning the equity story post-Series A
- Resourcing (internal and external) for a successful round.
