The day begins with breakfast and an early morning dedicated session with the Founder and at least one more member of the team.

Start time 10:00

After a light refreshments and informal networking, the day begins with the founder’s introduction followed by attendee introductions.

Consultants & advisors will discuss their first-hand experience of positioning multiple businesses in different verticals, the challenges they faced and how they overcame them.  

The floor will be opened up for discussions with the attendees about their business and the challenges they are facing today.  Our experts will help answer your questions and discuss how they would approach your business and which strategies they would employ.  

Afternoon Sessions

Start time 13:00

The afternoon will be spent in a number of workshops where you will get the opportunity to deep dive into your business model, competitor analysis, market opportunity, funding strategy, growth trajectory, future funding, longer-term build and/or exit. 

We will look at your current business model and pitch deck, giving you a top-level analysis from active investors who see pitch decks every day. Further analysis will be done by the team of experts who are responsible for writing pitch decks that have enabled millions of pounds of investment to be achieved across multiple businesses in various verticals.

We will help you improve on your existing business model and pitch deck or rewrite it, based on our proven formulas.  

The end of these sessions will provide you with the opportunity to discuss whether the investors present would invest in your company or if there is someone in their wider network who would be interested in investment. You could have your new investor lined up at the end of this workshop and you will have worked on vital areas of your business.

Close: 16:00

“One of the most pervasive problems for many startups I work with is not just getting the funding but how and where to spend it for maximum impact.

I’ve seen life savings, friends & family money and early seed investment spent on the wrong things but also far too much wasted on the right things, delivered by businesses making huge profits on the dreams of inexperienced entrepreneurs.
