Angels & Dragons: The essentials of raising equity

Monday 18 October 2021  |  4pm – 5.30pm

Raising equity is very different from raising other types of finance, but it can really accelerate the growth of your business.

If an external investor is getting an attractive deal, and you get to scale your business and benefit from their expertise, it’s a win-win scenario.

Preparing for investment can be an intimidating challenge, particularly when you’re faced with highly experienced, high net worth (rich) professional investors who have seen it all before.

As a result, they’ll have developed a highly tuned ability to spot any inconsistencies, the tricksters, the over-inflated prospects for returns, and the generally unprepared of pitchers.

This workshop – led by a successful serial angel investor, Bev Hurley OBE – will focus on getting you feeling ready for your equity pitch.

On this workshop, you will:

  • Identify types of investors you need to avoid
  • Understand critical information angels need to see in your business plan and financials
  • Explore effective ways to present your business
  • Learn common pitfalls to avoid when pitching

Led by experts, this programme is highly interactive, with plenty of opportunities for discussion and to practise your skills in a supportive and friendly environment.

Who is this course for?

This course is for business leaders or strategic managers of established businesses with 3 – 249 employees. It is for growing businesses with demonstrable potential for scale, or for high growth businesses looking to speed up their growth.
