2019 will see the launch of two key initiatives that will help catalyse early stage investing across the UK.
From Innovate UK’s £3m Regional Angel Investment Accelerator, to British Business Investments’ new £100m Regional Angels Programme, this series of seminars will look at how these programmes work and more importantly, where they will fit within the wider funding landscape, at a local level.
We will also hear from leading investors, angel groups, VCs and local startup champions about:
- The anatomy of a great deal. What investors should be looking for in a startup business.
- The many forms of funding and how to make them all work together, including leveraging grants with equity.
- The region’s sector strengths and burgeoning local tech clusters.
The Connected Investing event series is delivered by UKBAA in partnership with Innovate UK and is free to attend.
