What we're about

About Investors & Entrepreneurs

The main aim of this group is to simplify and demystify the business funding process so that you can make it work for you. We want you to spend as little money, time and effort as possible on securing investment for your business, so you can be free to focus on what's most important to you.

In an ideal world, we'd like the information we share here to reach entrepreneurs BEFORE they start searching for capital. However, even if you're further down the road on your journey towards funding, and are facing obstacles along the way, we can help you re-energise your search. 

Our events, tools and services provide a wealth of invaluable content that is not widely available. Here are just a few reasons why this might benefit you.

You will:

• learn the proven, successful approach to attracting angel investors

• find out how to value a start-up or early-stage company and give away as little equity as possible

• get the inside track on funding from active angel investors and bankers

learn from other entrepreneurs who have been successful in securing funding

• find out how to enter high-stakes investment negotiations with confidence and clarity

• get the inside knowledge on running a hugely successful crowdfunding campaign

• enjoy networking with other entrepreneurs and business professionals

secure the freedom you need to focus on what matters most to you
