#2/2023 Report: Funding and Growth Opportunities for Tech Businesses
30 Global Funding Opportunities 🚀 5 Virtual Events 🚀 And more
In this newsletter and Report, I highlight funding and growth opportunities for tech businesses that I believe are worthy of your investment over the next twelve months.
Periodically, I track funding and growth opportunities for tech businesses, that are available for companies from multiple countries, from international funding events, from pre-seed funding to late-stage Series E and F rounds, to open calls for public funding. Moreover, to support your tech business in scaling up or finding capital and networking resources further down the line, I also track tech events with virtual attendance possibilities.
This newsletter and Report represent a newly improved format of the previous 10+ newsletters ‘‘Funding&Growth. 2021-2022 Calendar’’, which you can access in the Archive.
As a paid edition, the full Report can be accessed by paying subscribers.

Some further comments on methodology, are in order:
The information presented here was compiled manually by trawling 100+ relevant news sources. It’s unlikely I captured every relevant funding opportunity and virtual event and is not what I am aiming for, but I believe the results are reasonably comprehensive and useful for tech businesses around the world; if you would like to publish in this newsletter and Report, a funding opportunity or a virtual event from the technology space, that is open for companies from multiple countries, I would be happy to talk further.
Frequency of this Report: A new edition of this Report and newsletter will be published as often as I find relevant information on funding opportunities and virtual events in the technology space. From the experience of publishing the previous editions in 2021-2022, this Report can be published once a month, once every two months, or twice a month, depending on opportunities. For a new edition of this Report and newsletter, I usually centralize the new opportunities, in addition to the ones from previous editions that are still actual.
The descriptions I provide are based on a brief review of each opportunity’s website at the time of writing. But things can change quickly, so depending on when you are reading this, any given website might now be telling a different story or the link might not be functional. Also, I’ve tried to make each description as informative as possible in a short space, usually no more than one sentence; but there are a few cases where I spent significant time and effort on a website trying to get a clear picture of the opportunity and summarize it as well as possible.
This Report is structured by month. At the end of each month's section, you'll find funding opportunities with a deadline in that month and virtual events taking place during that month. However, the first section of this Report will be for opportunities with multiple deadlines and continuous application. The second section of this Report is a selection of other tools and resources, that I found useful for tech businesses. This is simply a map of the space that makes sense to me and may help you determine which sections of the Report are most relevant to you.
