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:

The workshop will be led by Giovanni Finocchio, a Midven Investment Director who has invested in early stage companies for the past 8 years.
