    Investment Readiness Programme 2014, 1st and 8th June 2015

    Start date: 01/06/2015
    Cost: 2 Day Event

    9:30 – 16:30 Includes Lunch

    Thornton Science Park, University Of Chester, Poole Lane, Ince, Cheshire. CH2 4NU

    The purpose of this two day event is to help you prepare to get investment from Business Angels, Venture Capitalists and Banks.

    Remember- even if you’re not looking for investment now this will be just as valuable, as an investment ready business is a much stronger business than one that is not investment ready! Getting funds from Angels and Venture Capitalists is a sales process and the seminar will take you through the investment journey with the following learning outcomes:

    • Understand what an investment is in the eyes of an investor
    • What investors are and what they are looking for
    • How to get to investors and how they operate
    • Preparing the resources required including the Information Memorandum, Business Plan, and Full Pitch
    • The stages of the process including research, the approach, and the pitch through to due diligence, the contact and post investment investor management
    • The legal and contractual pitfalls and how to avoid them
    • Preparing for and managing the Due Diligence process
    • Practise and perfect their investment pitch in front of seminar members and visiting investors.

    The two day programme will include presentations from a number of external contributors including investors and nationally recognised experts in their fields.

    The programme concludes with a pitch to three real Angel investors.
