Delivered by experienced investors, the programme is designed to “demystify” the world of equity finance and prepare ambitious businesses with growth potential to apply for much needed investment.
This initial half-day workshop will give you multiple insights into the equity investment process and whether it is right for you.
Topics covered include:
Who should attend?
