Businesses that attend Investment Readiness 101 will be automatically booked onto the subsequent Pitch Critique session and will receive one-to-one mentoring.

Day 1 - Investment Readiness 101 - 3 October 2018 (9.30 am - 4 pm)

Find out what kind of investment is right for you, and what needs to be prepared to be pitch-ready. The day will cover the investment ecosystem; including what investors look for, a toolkit for developing and delivering an investment deck and how to find investors. You will:

  • develop and practice a 7 minute pitch for your investment opportunity
  • understand the different types of funding available
  • learn about the structure and content of a pitch
  • find out how to value your business
  • understand better the investors perspective
  • learn what to expect at due diligence (from a friendly investor).

All attendees are offered an optional 1:1 call with the Access to Funding & Finance team at the Knowledge Transfer Network, or with The Big House Digital Business Advisors, so they can practice their pitch and receive feedback.
