WOW! What an amazing FIT Summit in Singapore las month. I greatly enjoyed moderating the panel🎙“Successfully Scaling, Funding and Exiting your Fitness and Wellbeing Business in Today’s Markets.”🎙

We heard wise and candid insights from Brad Robinson of Ritual | The 30-Minute Gym & K5054 EnterprisesMelissa Murray of Bird & Bird and Tim Veron of Vively that could very much apply to all entrepreneurs journeys.

We discussed many key topics for the current fundraising climate and beyond including;
1️⃣ The importance of grit as an entrepreneur
2️⃣ Fundamentals and profitability have become critical to raise
3️⃣ Grow but pause to ensure you are expanding at the right pace
4️⃣ Always be raising and be thinking a few rounds ahead
5️⃣ Think about what markets you want to enter and protect your IP
6️⃣ Focus on great communication with franchisees and budget enough to support them
7️⃣ Stay in touch with your potential investors and update them about your progress…
and many more insights from this insightful panel.
