Festival Investor ProgrammeInternational Business Festival
The International Business Festival will be launching the festival’s investor programme tomorrow. This is an important element of the programme offer and it has been developed in partnership with the UK Business Angels Association (UKBAA) and will have 3 core strands:
- The Investor Pitch
Businesses need to register for a festival ticket and will then be asked to fill in a questionnaire, this is sent to UKBAA for judging. 6-8 businesses will be selected to pitch to 30 – 50 investors on the Futures Stage on 8 of the 9 festival days.
(Applies to businesses seeking £250 – £10m in funding)
- Investment advice
Businesses will be able to listen to investors on ‘how to become investable’ on the Knowledge Hub
- International Investment Summit
UKBAA will be organising an event for 500 investors on 19 June
So whether entrepreneurs are selected to pitch or not, there will still have plenty of opportunity to mingle with these high value delegates. Not least via our online delegate select system, whether they can search, target and book meetings ahead of time.
Please share with your networks via social/newsletter or any other channel this week if you can, we obviously want to ensure as many LCR and North West businesses as possible take advantage of this opportunity.
