Funding Clinics for 2019

Lack of investment is one of the biggest barriers to business growth. Whilst it is harder to access bank loans these days, there is still money available for growing and ambitious businesses, particularly through alternative investment from business angels and crowdfunding.

What is a Funding Clinic?
Hatty Fawcett runs weekly Funding Clinics. Each clinic lasts 30 minutes and provides an opportunity for you to discuss your investment needs in an informal environment and to gain practical, tailored advice on the funding options open to your business. We meet online using Zoom video conferencing. All you need is an internet connection and a laptop/computer with a webcam and microphone to take part.

The clinics are most suitable for businesses looking to raise investment of £50K or more. Clinics must be booked in advance. Scroll to the bottom of this page to book your Funding Clinic.
