Ambitious Digital/Tech Business Owner and Want to get Investor Ready?

We are inviting ambitious, investment curious Tees Valley business owners who are wanting to scale up their digital/tech businesses to join our latest exciting programme.

The aim of the Investor Readiness Programme is to help senior leaders learn about the process of making their business investible through a series of seminars and practical activities. These sessions include: How To Raise Money, How VC Funds Work, Negotiation Tactics and Potential Issues At Different Financing Stages. The peer to peer workshops will be complimented by a package of expert one-to-one mentoring that will be bespoke to the needs, priorities and objectives of each business on the Programme.

DigitalCity has a long and successful track record of working with start-up and scale-up businesses – and the Investor Readiness Programme is being delivered by the team behind the highly successful SCALE Programme that worked with over 30 of the Tees Valley’s leading high growth businesses in 2017 and 2018.

David Dixon, Investment Programme Manager at DigitalCity said: “Most of the companies we work with ask us for assistance in understanding what funding is available, who and where the investors and funders are – and what they need to prepare for any discussions with them. This face to face programme offers a practical way for businesses to understand the investment climate, with insights from people that regularly negotiate investment deals for digital start-up and scale-up businesses.”

The Investor Readiness Programme is being delivered on May 7th, 14th & 21st at Teesside University’s Darlington Campus. If you would like to attend, please contact David Dixon on 01642 342 520 or Email: david.dixon@tees.ac.uk
