WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Founders & CEOs


WHAT’S THE SESSION ABOUT?

We will plunge into the heart of the topic of regulations with Gareth Malna, Sarah Kenshall and Mark Shepherd of Burges Salmon. They have prepared a best-of case studies and crunchy insights from the legal frontline, from IP contracts to patent considerations:

  • First session: Working with VCs - Mark Shepherd will talk about From Term Sheet to Funding’: what to expect and pitfalls to watch out for when working with VCS and Sarah Kenshall will present ‘Polishing the Silver’: a look at intellectual property through the lens of a VC undertaking due diligence on your company. This session will help you put your house in order ready for your next funding round.
  • Second session: Commercialising your technology in a fast changing world: two break-out sessions to choose from: A. dealing with regulatory change, learning from the past to adapt to the future or B. commercialising software, copyrights, data and materials – understanding licence agreements. Both options will help founders confidently negotiate contracts with an eye to the future.

We will then host the FCA. Their session will focus on how the UK's regulatory landscape is looking to evolve and grow as innovation takes hold in financial services.


SESSION TAKEAWAYS

By the end of the session, you will:

1. Have heard from the experts with reference to real examples of the requirements and processes surrounding getting regulated;

2. Be aware of opportunities for fintechs with the UK regulators;

3. Understand how the regulatory landscape is looking to evolve in the coming months and years.
