28 February | From Start Up, to Scale Up, to Unicorn – Informed Funding Networking Seminar at The Leather Market – 28th February | London

Time: 18:00 - 20:30

Where: Workspace's The Leather Market, 11/13 Weston Street, London, SE1 3ER

We are great at creating start ups in the UK – ranked 3rd amongst developed nations. Yet fewer than 3% of our start ups still exist after a decade and the UK falls to 13th in a league table for Scale Ups. As to Unicorns, they take some finding.

 

We are pleased to say we have a Panel of speakers for the evening who have succeeded (and sometimes failed) at all stages of the growth journey. They’ll share their experiences, ideas and guidance on the night.

Currently involved with E Fundamentals, Crowdstacker, University Cribs, Vector Law, Wagonex, Pedal and Car Vault.
  • Tom Brittonis Co-Founder of Syndicate Room– a business that connects ambitions investors with highly vetted startups.

  • Nick Slater is a Tech Entrepreneur with a passion in building and exploring businesses that can change the world.

Business finance is typically discussed in terms of accessing funding for the trading entity, often shaped by the aims of Funders. However, for most businesses, the personal finances of the ownership team are deeply entwined with the company – and it’s often where barriers to success arise.

As a business owner, or ownership team, this is a unique opportunity to assess whether you have your ownership strategy right. Managed within small private groups, learn from top experts, listen to the experience of others, test out your own ideas and get input on some of the challenges you are facing.

  • How to protect and grow the value of your stake in the business and mitigate personal risk at the same time.
  • Creating incentive teams for your key team and making sure you stay incentivised.
  • How best to extract value from the business, including the use of effective tax planning
  • How to incorporate your business stake in to a wider personal investment plan.

Attendees will have the opportunity to work at Grand Union Studios for the remainder of the day. Free #Superconnected Wi-Fi will be provided along with an opportunity to informally network with Workshop experts and ask additional questions or gain further guidance. In room guidance will come from leading experts from EFM (Business Strategy) and Clarity Wealth Management (Financial Planning).

 

Standard access to this Workshop Sessions is £50.00 (+VAT) but clients of EFM may access this  Workshop free or charge by contacting Natalia@efm.uk.com
