Event description

Description

One of the greatest challenges identified by scale-up (fast-growth) business founders in the West of England is that of access to investment. The lack of transparency of available regional funds and funders is something that needs to be addressed. Meanwhile, investors lament the lack of information about deal flow and investment infrastructure.

This event is deliberately planned to take place immediately before the SETsquared Bristol TechXpo so that you can enjoy both events in one evening. You are welcome to leave to walk to the Xpo any time after 1745, or if you'd prefer to catch a taxi, we'll be arranging transport - please let Briony know.

The Quarterly Investment Briefing is a new, regular gathering of investors at all stages, it is designed to create space for investors to:

  • Discover new opportunities and investment vehicles on the horizon
  • Learn about key investment news - internationally, nationally and regionally
  • Connect and collaborate with one another and share good practice

This event is a gathering of investors. If you are a fast growth business founder and you are keen to connect with potential investors, please provide a one page summary of your business, including your ask and your contact details. These will be circulated at the event. Send this as an attachment to briony.phillips@engine-shed.co.uk

The Quarterly Investment Briefing series is generously sponsored by Smith & Williamson, TLT Solicitors and KPMG.

Guiding Principles

The Quarterly Investment Briefing exists to encourage and enable more investment activity and to provide a platform to share good practice in the West of England. It is an initiative run by the Engine Shed in partnership with KPMG, Smith & Williamson and TLT. Those who attend the Quarterly Investment Briefing share three common principles:

  • Whoever attends is an active or potentially active investor, or manager of investors – or enabler of investment activity.
  • Whatever is presented is informative, fact-based and regionally relevant.
  • We value the opportunity to learn equally with the opportunity to share.

This event is organised by our regional Scale-up Enabler, Briony Phillips


Briony joined the Engine Shed team on a 1 year contract in June 2017 funded by Business West, Engine Shed, The University of Bristol and the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership(LEP) to work towards their shared ambition. Her first priority is to identify scale-up businesses in the West of England region and to better understand their challenges and second, to design, facilitate and support initiatives that will make it easier for businesses to scale-up more effectively – in the long term.
