This event guarantees personal introductions to angels, crowdfunders and other investors.
Here entrepreneurs will find out whether they have an idea for a business that could “be the next big thing” and if so how to best go from idea to proto-type, from prototype to beta test and beta –test to an investable proposition.
John Spindler from Capital Enterprise and David Gates and Paul Higgins of Rapid Innovation have devised a workshop based on real world examples of how companies have gone from an idea into a million pound business.
Entrepreneurs who attend the workshop will gain an understanding of:
A: The 4 step process of starting a high growth business (as detailed in the start-up genome report)
B: The basics of the Lean start-up approach and what is a “Minimal Viable Product”.
C: How to use a Business Model Canvas to plan a potential high growth new business
D: The 5 steps to solve the problem-solution fit and how that can be done and funded.
E: What investors and funders are looking for and how you can get funding for your new venture.
Those who progress from the workshop will have an opportunity to receive further one-to-one mentoring from experts, and if ready, a personal introduction to a Next Generation Finance Consortium partner crowdfunding organisation or business angel seed investors.
If you want to find out how to start and get funding for a high growth, game changing business then do book on to this programme.
