29 April 2014, 16:00 - 19:00

Radisson Blu Hotel, Frankland Lane, Durham DH1 5TA

Lending is still tight but investment is out there; loan and venture capital. 2014 is set to be the Year of Recovery when businesses will be taking advantage of fresh opportunities for growth. However competition for investment is tough as many will be seeking finance startup to expand fund acquisitions, capital projects and recruitment.

Your business may be ready to grow, but how do you know it’s ready for investment? Do you have a business model and people to interest investors? And how and where do you go to find investment that’s right for you and your business? These are all questions we’ll help you to answer by the end of this open event.

Access to finance is one of the main barriers to growth for small and medium sized businesses. Our team of experts aims to break the myths and share the secrets behind what to expect and how to make your business investment ready.

The event is led by Jonathan Gold, an expert in business development, commercialisation and investment readiness, including helping start-ups, entrepreneurs and small businesses to manage and access investment, venture capital and debt finance.

Jonathan will be joined by fellow Rivers Capital director and lecturer and fellow in entrepreneurship and innovation at Cambridge University, Peter Hiscocks and investor Andrew Jenkins.
