I am joining experts at Tablecrowd for a must-go-to-day on fundraising. All you need to know, hands-on and practical workshops about being ready for investment! Check out more details below and see you there…
Investor Readiness & Fundraising - 1 Day Workshop Details
Our workshops are designed to give practical and hands-on advice. Attendees will leave with new skills and knowledge that can be used immediately in their business or plans.
What outcomes can you expect?
Navigating the UK investment scene can be challenging, especially if it’s your first time. You'll save weeks (or months!) of time and avoid costly mistakes by learning from people who’ve navigated the path before you. The workshop will be practical and will provide you with a wealth of new knowledge.
As well as meeting real investors, you’ll walk away from this workshop armed with the knowledge and documents you’ll need for your funding round.
