Four Part Agenda:


Expo: Meet and talk to the experts at the stands who can discuss with you how your business may be able to take advantage of different funding opportunities. Start the process right there and then discussing the needs of YOUR business.

Challenge the Funder! See the top speakers together on stage helping you to resolve your funding challenges.

Consultation: If you're serious about funding this is your chance to get the funding process started on the day. These advisers are neutral, ie they don't have a particular funding strategy of product they want to sell you; instead they will take a holistic view with you to get you funded. Please Note: You must book the "Consultation" ticket above ahead of the event.

Networking: Don't forget the room is full of owners and founders of high growth businesses just like yours. People who are going places and are keen to get there sooner. Bring plenty of business cards -- you never know who you'll meet.
