17 May 2019
Institute of Directors, London

Insight Events - run by members, for members - are designed to enable you to explore a key topic, grow your network and gain practical advice from experts within the Advance community.

Raising finance is a challenging process – it takes time, perseverance and a strategic approach.

This webinar is designed to educate and prepare growth-orientated businesses to successfully engage private equity investors. We’ll explore:

  • The entire funding landscape – from alternative finance, to venture capital, to government backed initiatives.
  • Investors point of view – what are funding providers using to assess your funding applications and investment proposals?
  • How to develop an investor-ready financial model and investor deck to increase your overall chances of a successful outcome.

    You’ll gain a solid understanding of how to navigate what is now a complex funding landscape, as well as an action plan to access the right type of funding for your business!
