The backstory

I've always been fascinated by how the debt and equity capital markets enable firms to raise funds privately and publicly for growth. I remember hearing the news of Alibaba going public where it raised a staggering USD25bn. Since then, I developed a curiosity for capital movements within the investment sector. Joining Fundnel has exposed me to how investors target growth and pre-IPO companies, broadening my perspectives towards this complex yet wonderful industry.
