For lots of founders investment is the pinnacle: but how to obtain it, how to go about your first raise (if VC is for you), kickoff your crowdfunding campaign, and most importantly where to actually meet investors! We’re hopefully going to cover it all through our latest series ‘Investing in Women’.

12 Feb, 3pm – 5pm
3pm: overview of event: Stephen Fry, Executive Director – Westmont Enterprise Hub / Genevieve Oller, Raising Partners: providing overview on the event
3.15pm: presentation from Helena Murphy, Head of Investment – Raising Partners, covering: the fundamentals of how to get investment-ready, potential pitfalls, how she has raised / helped others.
4.00pm: roundtable (groups moving from table to table). posing questions:
- Where do you meet investors? (initially suggestions from RP, group to share experiences)
- What has your approach been? What has worked for you?
