This session will be hosted by Heropreneurs trustee, Stuart Nicol. Stuart has over 20 years’ experience of investing in over 60 high growth UK firms. He loves investing in small companies and doing his best to help them grow; he also gets a kick and inspiration from mentoring entrepreneurs. He currently runs his own business coaching high growth firms, helps them raise funds via NOTWICS, and is raising his next venture capital fund. He’s especially interested in profit with purpose firms.
Stuart previously served for six years in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, four years in the Reserves (OTC, 7/8 A&SH & London Scottish), and is a graduate of RMA Sandhurst, Loughborough University, and London Business School.
This session will cover aspects of raising funds for a business, including:
– What to think about before you do?
– How to organise it?
– How to make the most of it?
We will be focusing heavily on attendee participation in order to allow you to ask any pressing questions and get the most from this webinar. Please send your questions in to firstname.lastname@example.org before the event. Here are a few we’ve had already by way of example:
How do I best structure my business to take on external investors?
What do investors look for in founding teams and individuals?
How can start ups most efficiently identify and reach appropriate investors?
How do you think the pandemic has effected investor appetite for new ventures?
Sending in your questions will also help us gauge the level of current knowledge within the community. We’ll try to answer all questions either at the event or shortly afterwards.
