Helping entrepreneurs to navigate funding landscape.

Many entrepreneurs are confused by the fundraising landscape and to help them navigate the funding landscape better, we’ve designed this programme to help to demystify the funding options available to founders and entrepreneurs and to provide the skills and knowledge needed to fund business growth.

The Programme

The next programme will run from September to November 2021.

The programme is designed to demystify the funding options available to entrepreneurs and to provide them with the skills and knowledge needed to fund business growth. Sessions will cover the basics of grant funding, crowdfunding, equity investment, industry-specific funding information (such as raising funding in HealthTech, LawTech or AgriTech businesses), as well as other funding options.

The programme has been designed to be flexible and participants can choose the sessions they wish to join based on what is relevant to them and their business.

  • Improve your knowledge of innovation grant funding, crowd funding and equity investment, the three main components of the programme, and we will touch other the funding options available including industry-specific fundraising
