Tees Valley: Demystifying Funding for SMEs


Following our Tees Valley: Securing Investment  launch event, this Demystifying Investment Jargon event will help founders adopt investor lingo so you can discuss your fundraising strategy and approach investors with confidence.


In this workshop, we’ll walk through common fundraising terms, unpacking increasingly important (and frankly, ridiculous) jargon. We’ll begin by providing a quick recap on types on 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!
