Social Enterprise Finance Fair 2019
Calling all social enterprises!!
If you are looking for finance but are not sure where to start or how to approach the funders that you really want to be talking to, this event is for you!
The Impact Hub King’s Cross Finance Fair is the perfect opportunity to meet finance providers, from high street banks and crowdfunding specialists to angel investors and social loan funds.
Not sure which type of finance is right for you?
Each finance provider will give a 5-minute presentation of what they do, the kind of businesses they work with and a realistic overview of the opportunities they may be able to create/ facilitate.
Who will be there?
We already have Big Issue Invest, Mustard Seed, CAF Venturesome, NatWest Bank, Seedrs, Community Impact Partnership (Peabody, Clarion, Orbit, L&Q), LEAP – FEA Network and Crowdfunder confirmed.
Check back for more names as we get closer to the event!
What will happen on the evening?
After the finance providers have given their presentations, there will be a short networking break and then the exciting part – meeting the finance providers!
You will be given the opportunity to meet up to three providers for 10 minutes each. During this time, you will have the opportunity to pitch your business, ask questions and really explore how you could take this further.
Please note: All slots will be allocated on a first come first serve basis based on your selection and the compatibility of your business with the providers’ investment criteria.
Not sure about your pitch?
Before the event we will run a series of workshops to help you perfect your business pitch. Dates for the workshops will be announced nearer the time.
Want to talk to someone that you haven’t been assigned an appointment with?
Don’t worry! There will be plenty of time between appointments and towards the end of the event to grab a drink and network with fellow entrepreneurs and funders.
