16th September, 11:00-12:30 - here at the btc in Steveage!
Raising finance is often the number one challenge for the majority of business owners:
How do I find an investor?
Why will they invest in me?
How do I present a compelling case?
How much equity shall I give away?
These are all questions that both an entrepreneur and a funder need to address and align to complete a successful fund raise.
Throughout this event we’ll be looking at:
The investment proposition and the need to actively engage investors from the first contact.
The business opportunity and how an investor can help you grow your business.
The essential steps that you should make to ensure your business is investment ready!
The steps required to prepare the ideal business plan.
How to achieve your business plan aims and how to avoid the pitfalls.
This structured event can help you through the finance maze and provide the type of professional, experienced and unbiased, guidance on financial challenges that is so hard to find or too expensive to consider.
This event is not suitable for sole traders
