"A Practical Guide to Raising Funds for Entrepreneurs"
Our Speaker is:
Tony has over 20 years' of experience transforming organisations and maximising their profits through innovation and development of disruptive technologies. The solution depends on specific business needs of organisations to achieve sustainable growth.
The starting place is always understanding what are your aspirations, and the barriers that are preventing you from achieving growth. Perhaps you are not clear what your goals should be, and you need support to re-focus on how best to maximise your business impact.
Tony works with clients to help define the business growth objectives, and then creates and delivers a tailored “tool-kit” approach, which could include:
Accessing grant funding for R&D (here, Tony and his team have accessed over £200M for businesses from UK and EU government funding bodies)
Idealisation of new product concepts, partnering with scientists & engineers to develop these products plus robust supply-chain companies to ensure rapid market penetration and commercialisation
Creating business partnering opportunities
Accessing R&D tax credits
Business coaching and mentoring
Increasing the commercial culture of businesses
Market dynamics analysis
Ideas generation workshop, delivering transformational concepts
Sales training for your commercial teams
