About this Event

Join KPMG and Nexus at The University of Leeds for the next in our series of Breakfast Briefings. This session will help you better understand the tools that can unlock fundraising opportunities and maximise value in the future, whatever your exit plan is, and regardless of how far down the road it may seem.

NorthInvest are a not-for-profit organisation who facilitate angel investment into tech start-ups in the North of England. Charlotte Scott (Entrepreneur Coach) will talk you through strategies and available channels for securing seed funding.

KPMG’s Mergers & Acquisition (M&A) team are experts in advising business owners on raising finance and the right exit strategy for them, while working alongside them to maximise the value of their businesses.

Ben Taylor (Head of Tech M&A) and Joe Bainborough (Corporate Finance) will give insights into the next stage of fundraising plus:

  • Things to consider when maximising the value of your business
  • Valuation methodologies
  • What to expect from the due diligence process and how to prepare
  • Investment and exit options

You will also have the opportunity to hear first-hand from an entrepreneur who has successfully maximised the value of their business. Jeremy Gidlow (Co-founder of Netacea and Intechnica) will talk through his experience of founding technology companies, securing investment and working in partnership with private equity funds.
