The British Design Fund realises there are few funding mechanisms specifically dedicated to early stage product businesses and believes that these early stage product businesses need not just capital but also mentoring and expertise along the way to ensure they grow into successful companies.
The British Design Fund looks to work with extraordinary entrepreneurs, with innovative and scalable products, who are ready to accelerate growth and build long-term value and thriving stand-out businesses but realises to get to this point, there may be a few questions you will be asking yourselves, such as:-
When is the right time to ask for investment?
What do I say to investors?
What about my protection?
These are just some of the questions you will be thinking about, so during this session, Damon will look at breaking down the essential things that investors look for when investing in start-ups.
This session will cover how you should structure your pitch deck and what part of your business plan investors really care about followed by Q&A Session.
