The background

I was commissioned in December 2019 to write a piece on startup funding for the Financial Times-affiliated Sifted website. Sifted’s tone of voice is very specific. Therefore the piece needed to be accessible enough for inexperienced startup owners to learn about the funding options available to them. But I also needed to write with sufficient detail that the piece would also interest those already more established.

The results

The finished piece can be found here:

Following the success of this initial article, Sifted asked me to produce a series of pieces, each focusing on providing detailed analysis of a single funding option:

Olly did a terrific job for us! He was nice to speak to over email and phone, really quick to deliver on the brief and his work was really stellar. We’d be happy to work with Olly again!
