Determine Your Business Value: Access to Finance and Investment

About This Event

Are you looking to uncover the most suitable and affordable finance options for your business?

Designed to help women entrepreneurs unleash their full potential, our Breaking Barriers Series brings together industry experts and women leaders to help your business get inspired, break-through roadblocks and supercharge growth.

Bridging the gender gap in access to finance is high on the agenda for many women-led businesses today. This event is a highly valuable opportunity to gain crucial insights from financial influencers and empower your business to break through the finance barrier to achieve your next stage of growth.


Why should you attend?

Join us as we share first-hand expert knowledge to access the financial support available to help manage and expand your business effectively.

Newable's Breaking Barriers series, part of the Fuelling Ambition Programme, in partnership with Innovate UK EDGE and with support from JPMorgan Chase, have designed this event to help women entrepreneurs gain a greater understanding of where their business sits financially, how to access financial support and what funding options are available to help.

Plus, discover how to pitch to venture capital investors, what investors are looking for and the best ways to use your achievements to raise finance. Having a solid grip on your finances and financial information will enable you to adapt quickly and thrive when marketplaces or industries change.
