Prestige networking event for growth company Directors

If you need to raise £2 million or more to support your growth plans, you're probably asking many questions right now. Is funding available from private equity, bank or other sources? How likely is it that your business will secure the money, and what will financiers expect in return? And what are your options if you can't get the funding that your business needs?

Chris Dines, ex-CEO of Ovum (and good friend of ours) is building an exciting new business called Knowledge Peers, an advice network for directors of growth companies (typically 10 to 500 employees). Aside from their growing online presence, Knowledge Peers hold regular, top quality, networking events. The next is an evening event at the Royal Institution on Monday 2nd November, and we have negotiated a number of complimentary tickets for qualifying UKHotViews readers.

The more formal part of the evening looks at some of the challenges that mid-tier companies will face in order to fund expansion. There’s a very interesting set of speakers and panellists, including tech entrepreneur, John O'Connell (who many of you will know well) and Andrew Garside, of private equity firm Isis Partners. There will be informal networking over drinks and canapés, and private access to the RI’s museum.

If you are a Director of a growth company and would like to find out more, or to register for the event, click here. When registering, please be sure to add "UKHotViews " to the name of your company in the "Company" field of the form else a booking fee will apply!

Be quick – the offer applies only to the first 25 qualifying Directors!
