It’s a topical discussion among all innovators and entrepreneurs alike. How do you secure successful funding? What’s the criteria? What are investors really looking for?
Taking place at Newmarket Racecourse on the 21st September, Venturefest East will be hosting a rare opportunity to hear from the experts themselves. At the ‘What Investors Want’ session you will hear from real investors including, serial entrepreneur and ‘entrepreneur-in-residence’ at Allia Future Business Centre, Mike Greene.
Unpacking valuable insights into what they really want and expect from innovators, these experts will tell you exactly what’s needed before they are willing to commit serious investment; you’ll certainly learn how to turn your business idea into an investment success for the future.
Mike Greene, serial entrepreneur and ‘Secret Millionaire’, said: “As an Investor who has also built businesses around the world, I know how frustrating it can be to get your venture funded …but it’s not just about getting investment, it’s about getting the right investment from the right partner(s) to protect you and your business. The most important thing is not to give up – Walt Disney went to 302 Banks before he got the investment he needed and Colonel Sanders (KFC) was turned down 1009 times – being focussed, well structured and properly prepared can massively reduce these odds in your favour.”
Laura Welham-Halstead, Venturefest East Champion and Head of Communications & Connectivity at the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough LEP, added:
