Workshop delivered by Innovate UK and KTN

Great start-ups do not fund themselves, and raising money from investors is challenging at any stage. This is true for experienced founders and companies with significant traction.

Having an excellent pitch is critical for getting the investors interested in your company and there is a simple formula for the pitch structure. However, companies still forget the basics and the same principles need to be followed whether looking to secure seed funding or Series A.

This event will focus on what different types of investors are looking for, including the content of a pitch and the investment deck. The session will also cover the due diligence process.

The session will provide companies and entrepreneurs the opportunity to hear from investors. Representatives from Innovate UK and the KTN will also be on hand to provide help and advice on navigating and accessing the support services to help grow your business and gain competitive advantage.
