Event description


Did you know? UK attracts about a third of all venture capital money available within Europe!

Did you know? Facebook, Twitter and Spotify were all funded through VCs when they started!

VC funding can be a great source of finance as they provide both support network and financial capital for businesses, but it is crucial for any business to carefully research the available VC firms, know and understand whether you're at a 'pitchable' stage before approaching for funds.

This event is your chance to explore your VC options and get educated on how the process works and what you need to deliver for successfully securing a VC!

If you are a business with scope for extensive growth, don't miss out on your chance on becoming the next Facebook, Twitter or Spotify!
