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.

The second event in the 2019 calendar will focus on regional investment initiatives - whether funds or patterns. Speakers will be confirmed nearer the time so check back soon.

12:30 - 12:40 Arrival, tea and coffee

12:40 - 1:25 Lightning talks, Q&A, conversation

  • An update on Bristol's One City Fund from Bristol and Bath Regional Capital

  • Information on Shaw and Co's work with the Scaleup community and forthcoming Scaleup Investment Academy

  • Tom Bridges (Leeds Office Leader and Director Cities Advisory, Arup) sharing his experience and observations from the Leeds investment ecosystem

1:25 - 1:30 What the data tells us about 2018

1:30 - 2:30 Drinks + networking

About this event

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 purely of investors. If you are a fast growth business founder and you would like to share your proposition with this group of 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 and shared digitally with a wider group of c. 200 investors. Send this as an attachment to briony.phillips@engine-shed.co.uk

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 and Associate Director, Briony Phillips
