Workspace are pleased to announce a new collaboration with Informed Funding, a new online information resource designed to help growing businesses identify the range of options they have to raise finance.

We'd like to invite you to the launch of Informed Funding at our newest building Metal Box on the 26th of February.

The day will feature talks from LOVESPACE UK, who raised £1.8 million in crowd equity; alternative finance providers Market Invoice, rebuildingsociety and CrowdCube; as well as MP Stephen Hammond and representatives from Natwest, Barclays and  Metro Bank.

On the day, there'll also be specialist advisors from Buzzacott who will deliver three, free, advice clinics focusing on R&D tax credits, valuations and VAT:
R&D Tax Credits – Do you know how to utilise these as a form of funding for your business?
Thousands of creative businesses fail to claim back cash they are due on the expense they incur on developing new products. This free one-to-one clinic, with leading experts from Buzzacott, will provide you with guidance on whether it is worth pursuing a claim.
Do you know how investors will value your business?
This is the big question most business owners ask. Meet specialist advisors from Buzzacott who can give initial pointers on how to value and sell your business – and how you might need to raise finance to get there.
