Event description
An event to bring the investor community together to network, share and learn.

About this Event

One of the greatest challenges identified by scale-up (fast-growth) business founders in the West of England (Bristol and Bath) is that of access to investment. The lack of transparency of available regional funds and funders is something that needs to be addressed. Meanwhile, investors lament the lack of information about deal flow and investment infrastructure.

The second event in the 2020 calendar will focus on investment funds. Speakers will be confirmed nearer the time so please check back soon.

12:30 - 12:40 Arrival, tea and coffee and sandwiches

12:40 - 13:30 Lightning talks, Q&A, conversation

Speakers to be confirmed shortly

Guiding Principles of the QIB

The Quarterly Investment Briefing exists to encourage and enable more investment activity and to provide a platform to share good practice in the West of England. It is an initiative run by the Engine Shed in partnership with KPMG, Smith & Williamson and TLT. Those who attend the Quarterly Investment Briefing share three common principles:

  • Whoever attends is an active or potentially active investor, or manager of investors – or enabler of investment activity.
  • Whatever is presented is informative, fact-based and regionally relevant.
  • We value the opportunity to learn equally with the opportunity to share.
  • This event is organised by our regional Scale-up Enabler and Associate Director, Briony Phillips
