Episode 1: Funding Rounds with Alex McPherson
Ignition’s very own Jake Schogger kicks off our brand new podcast in style, hosting an in-depth discussion on funding rounds with the firm’s founder, Alex McPherson.
In this episode, we delve into funding rounds, including why businesses need funding, when they should seek funding, key sources of capital, the legal steps involved, key terms to negotiate, and an insight into what can go wrong when rounds aren’t properly managed.
Our guest, Alex McPherson, worked at Freshfields and Hogan Lovells as a corporate lawyer, before setting up Ignition Law in 2015. Ignition has grown exponentially to a team of roughly 80 and is now an award-winning law firm, with strong ethics and a majority female senior leadership team.
