What does an investor wants to see in a business plan – 6th February 2020

Raising finance is often the number one challenge for the majority of business owners:

  • How do I find an investor?
  • Why will they invest in me?
  • How do I present a compelling case?
  • How much equity shall I give away?

These are all questions that both an entrepreneur and a funder need to address and align to complete a successful fundraise.

This workshop is free to access for all, but with limited places. Please register your interest in attending, priority will be given to Workspace and Club Workspace customers.

Throughout the Workshop we’ll be looking at:

  • The investment proposition and the need to actively engage investors from the first contact.
  • The business opportunity and how an investor can help you grow your business.
  • The essential steps that you should make to ensure your business is investment ready!
  • The steps required to prepare the ideal business plan.
  • How to achieve your business plan aims and how to avoid the pitfalls.
  • The legal aspects of business investment.

This structured Workshop can help you through the finance maze and provide the type of professional, experienced and unbiased, guidance on financial challenges that is so hard to find or too expensive to consider.
