Event details:

If an external investor is getting an attractive deal, and you get to scale your business and benefit from their expertise, it’s a win-win scenario.

Preparing for investment can be an intimidating challenge, particularly when you’re faced with highly experienced, high net worth (rich) professional investors who have seen it all before.

As a result, they’ll have developed a highly tuned ability to spot any inconsistencies, the tricksters, the over-inflated prospects for returns, and the generally unprepared of pitchers.

This workshop – led by a successful serial angel investor, Bev Hurley OBE – will focus on getting you feeling ready for your equity pitch.

On this workshop, you will:

  • Identify types of investors you need to avoid
  • Understand critical information angels need to see in your business plan and financials
  • Explore effective ways to present your business
  • Learn common pitfalls to avoid when pitching

Led by experts, this programme is highly interactive, with plenty of opportunities for discussion and to practise your skills in a supportive and friendly environment.
