IDEALondon is hosting the second edition of their Investor Breakfast series and this time is opening up the discussion to Cisco NVI node members. This event is designed for anyone who wants to better understand the UK start-up investment scene. IDEALondon have gathered a fantastic line-up of panellists from across the UK investment landscape:
Luke Hakes, Principal at Octopus Investments;
Jean de Fougerolles, CEO of Ascension Ventures;
Kevin Chong, Managing Director of AngelLab;
John Spindler, CEO of Capital Enterprise and the London Co-Investment Fund (LCIF).
In addition, Stuart McKnight, Managing Director of Ascendant Corporate Finance will present his latest insights on the state of the UK tech investment scene.
The primary purpose of the panel is to educate the entrepreneurial community on some of the things that investors feel are lacking when they sit down with founders. Some of the themes that will be explored including what investors look for in a business, what value they can bring to a business, what influences their decision making, how to approach investors and the most common 'faux-pas' founders make.
However this discussion is designed to be interactive and we would welcome questions and general observations from attendees. If you have a question you would like posed to the panel, please include it in your event registration. Alternatively there will be an open floor session during the event in which you can ask questions.
There will be breakfast served from 8:30am and the main event will be wrapped up by 10:30am.
We hope to see you there!
