Ready. Fund. Grow. – Crossing the Funding Gap

The UK funding landscape is ever changing and almost weekly a new alternative source of funding becomes available to small businesses. Do you need to cross the dreaded funding gap between funds raised through family and friends and Series A? How will you navigate this funding landscape and identify which source of finance is the right one for your business at this stage? And crucially, how do you avoid wasting your time chasing the wrong funders?

‘Ready. Fund. Grow.’, brought to you by G and Crowdcube, is designed specifically with your business and your fundraise in mind. G’s Growth Finance team are experts in raising funds for small businesses – they have helped to shape over 400 equity and debt fundraising transactions in the last five years. 87% of the businesses G has supported have been successful in getting introductions to funders. Crowdfunding has emerged as a significant source of finance for high-growth companies in recent years. Crowdcube is one of the UK’s largest crowdfunding platforms, with over £360m of finance raised and over 600 businesses completing a successful funding round on the platform to date.

Join the G and Crowdcube teams and some of their contacts from the food and beverage funding world in The Lounge on 1st February for an evening of unique insight from industry funders and experts.

The evening will cover:

  • Insights into today’s funding market in the UK.
  • How to create impact with Seed investors: hear first-hand from a panel of expert investors what they look for in an investment opportunity and how you can maximise your chances of success in securing Seed finance.
  • Hear from businesses in the food and beverage sector who have successfully raised Seed funding. 

This will be followed by an evening of networking with other like-minded business leaders plus the opportunity to book onto one-to-one funding clinics with G’s Growth Finance team and ‘Expert in Residence’ drop-in sessions with the Crowdcube team.

When: Thursday, 01 February 2018. 18:30 - 20:30 (GMT)

Where: Grant Thornton, The Lounge, London, EC2A 1AG
