Investment ABCs for SMEs Tees Valley

This Demystifying Investment Jargon workshop on Tuesday 24th September, 10:00 – 12:30 at The BIS, Hartlepool, will help founders adopt investor lingo so you can discuss your fundraising strategy and approach investors with confidence.

Content:

In this workshop, we’ll walk through common fundraising terms, unpacking increasingly important jargon. We’ll begin by providing a quick recap on types of investor and wrap up with a quick game of Buzzword Bingo to test who among us is investor (conversation) ready.

What will you learn?

We’ll cover specific terms around:

  • What an investor’s “investment thesis” is
  • Your target market
  • Discussing your financial model
  • Talking about your business bottom line
  • What is a CAP table and shareholder terms you need to know
  • Specific deal terminology
  • Legal documents
  • Bonus terms

Get your spot booked now and we will look forward to meeting you!

More details about the programme

We have launched a new programme set to enable hundreds more businesses in the Tees Valley to navigate the funding landscape and secure the finance they need to grow.

Tees Valley Securing Investment has received £880,000 from the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund as part of the Tees Valley Combined Authority’s UKSPF Programme of support.

The programme will address the long-standing barriers facing the region’s businesses in accessing money by connecting enterprises with investors and funds.

Increasing the range of funding on offer to businesses through access to the Northern Investor Hub, businesses can also access bespoke one-to-one support, in-depth workshops and an online training programme – all designed to improve investment readiness.

Open to businesses and socially trading enterprises operating across the Tees Valley Combined Authority area, the programme is led by innovation finance specialists and business support providers Innovation SuperNetwork, in partnership with SmartaCPI Enterprises & Edge Innovation.
