Early-Stage Funding Options for Fast Growth Businesses

Wednesday, 19 April
10:00 am - 12:00 GMT
Online via Zoom

Are you a startup or an SME navigating the complex and diverse ecosystem of fundraising?

Historically, high growth SMEs have tended to want access to bank finance rather than equity finance to fund growth.

With a desire to retain autonomy in their business, what effect does this have on growth? What are the options open to these SMEs in the current economic climate?

The early-stage financing landscape has become ever more complex seemingly providing a plethora of funding options: from traditional Venture Capitalists, Independent Angels, to family and crowd funding, bank lending and now, even corporate investment.

This two hour workshop aims to help you understand the options available to you to decide how best to proceed with choosing the best route for your business.  This will be an interactive session where you will have the opportunity to learn from and interact with a panel of experts representing academia, some of the leading Venture Capitalists, active Angel Networks in London, and explore the different kinds of flexible capital support available from the Banking sector.

The workshop will provide:

  • An overview of the various opportunities and challenges in different funding sectors.
  • An opportunity to interact with representatives from the different funding landscapes.
  • A case study of an LWIN member/health-tech startup, demonstrating their journey of navigating the different funding   options.

Do not miss this opportunity to interact with experts as well as other businesses, and equip yourselves with the tools and knowledge to take your business to the next level
