Fundamentals of Funding series

Join the Enabling Innovation team for an interactive workshops on finance for SMEs. This series will equip business owners on how to navigate the complex world of business finance.

Attracting Investment

This workshop will equip participants with the tools and knowledge their need to take forward their funding strategies and attract investment. The techniques covered can also be used for pitching for publicly available SME funds and generally in Business Planning for Growth. We will cover the types of documents SMEs need for pitching including:

  • Elevator Pitch, a one-page Executive Summary,
  • a Pitch Deck,
  • a Video Pitch (for crowdfunding)
  • a traditional Business Plan.

We will then go on to cover how to find the right investors and approach them and also do a high-level overview of SEIS and EIS – which are tax breaks for investors in early stage businesses.

Participants will have the opportunity to begin working on their executive summaries and pitches during the session.

Participants looking to attend this session can also sign up to Financial Management and Planning for Growth
