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 to move to a really profitable exit, 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 and have already forgotten far more than you have already learned. And they have a highly tuned ability to detect moonshine and malarkey, hucksters and tricksters, impossible tech products and incredible returns, and unprepared pitchers from a mile away! 

This workshop, presented by a successful serial angel investor, will cut through the hype around equity investment. You’ll learn what investors you need to avoid, what angels really want to see in your business plan and your financials, when to use a teaser, a pitch deck and a business plan, data rooms, valuations and much more.

Who is this for?

This fully-funded workshop is designed for businesses with between 3 – 249 employees, a turnover of more than £30k, and are growing or have potential to grow.
