BusinessCloud Insights: Tech investment

Friday 22nd March 2019 at UKFast Campus, Manchester, Greater Manchester, M15 5QJ

This event runs from 9.00am till 10.30am (registration 8.30am).  

Attracting funding can be the biggest challenge for any firm with ambitions to grow.

Topics and itinerary

Bank funding; crowdfunding; angel investment; venture capital; private equity; and an IPO are just some of the options available but how do you decide which one is right for you and when is the right time to press the button?

Choosing the right investor can be a minefield. Pick the right one and it can be the catalyst for growth but choose the wrong one and it can be a recipe for disaster.

Why attend and what you'll learn

BusinessCloud Insights' latest breakfast event will lift the lid on the do's and don'ts of tech investment and answer the questions you're too afraid to ask.

When is the right time to seek investment?
How much equity should you be prepared to give away?
How do you know who the right investor is for you?
How do you deliver the perfect pitch to investors?
