Private investors account for over £1bn of annual investment into the UK’s early stage and growth companies – the single biggest source of investment, delivered by an increasingly diverse, professional and international range of individuals. These individuals increasingly coordinate through their own networks, often focused on a specific range of opportunities.

To attract and retain the right source of Angel Investment, business owners must match the demands and expectations of this source of finance. It’s a challenge that requires a skilled, professional approach.

This Informed Funding Seminar will give you the opportunity to better understand how to find, close and retain Angel Finance. It consists of a morning of 1:1 Finance and Funding Strategy consultations, an afternoon of workshops delivered in small groups, followed by an evening of informed discussion and networking. A chance to meet a range of experienced Angel Investors and Specialists. Wine and Canapes will be available in the evening.

Finance and Funding Strategy Consultations - 9:30am to 1:30pm*

A 1:1 consultation can help you through the finance maze. provide the type of independent, experienced and trusted, guidance on financial challenges that is so hard to find or too expensive to consider.

  • Testing readiness for Investment
  • Identifying Angels and making the right approaches.
  • Securing finance – valuation, terms, dilution, negotiation.
  • Getting the mix of Angel finance and other finance right.
  • Working with your Angel Investors – shareholder agreements, managing expectations, information flow and more.
  • Subsequent funding rounds and fluctuating valuation.
