The provide pitch template must not be used, in part or whole, outside of the event without permission.


Investor meeting conduct 
You will get to meet with many investors in this meet up group. Follow this code: 
1. Primarily, research and read the Investors website, in particular their portfolio. 2. Investigate and check if the VC is a relevant fit for you and your company. 3. Be prepared to spend a percentage of your time on a regular basis to get investment. 4. There are no short/quick fixes to the investment process. It is a process and it has stages and can take time and lots of work, preparation and planning i.e. a marathon and not a sprint  5. You will need to meet with several investors over a long period of time. 6. Do not form a queue in order to talk to a VC, during the networking session. As other members will want to speak to the Investor as well, spend a few minutes talking to the investor  7. Do not cold approach investors. It is better to get to know them by a warm introduction from a person within their network

You need to be able to deliver your pitch in 3 minutes - during the networking part of the event. 
This event is only for UK based companies. 


Cafe conduct 
You are required to: 
1. buy an item from the cafe, if you attend the event. 2. keep the noise to a minimum. 3. keep within the reserved area of the venue at all times
