We are delighted to announce that Midven will be running a two-day Investment Readiness workshop.

This is a 2 day workshop. The sessions will be held on 16th October 2018 & 22nd October 2018 and there is a requirement that attendees attend on both dates in order to benefit from the sessions.

The sessions will cover the following topic areas:

– How to create a structured and strategic business plan

– How to create achievable financial forecasts

– What investors look for in a pitch and how to pitch successfully

– How to structure your company legally to ensure a smooth investment process

The workshop will be led by Giovanni Finocchio, a Midven Investment Director who has invested in early stage companies for the past 8 years. He will be joined by industry experts Tony Seaton from Blue Sky Corporate Finance and Toby Harper from Harper James Solicitors, who will provide professional guidance on financial planning and legal documentation respectively.

Midven has a strong record of investing in early stage businesses and has been appointed to manage the new £35m West Midlands Equity fund, part of the Midlands Engine Investment Funds (MEIF).
