Event: What investors really want: how to win every funding bid

What investors really want: how to win every funding bid
Date: Thu 24 September 2020
Time: 2:00PM - 3:30PM
Where: Online Webinar
To register for free.
Like every business owner, you’ll be familiar with the worry and stress that comes with securing funding from investors.
For instance, how many hours have you spent putting together stand-out pitch presentations, turning over questions in your head like…
What will I do if my funding bid gets rejected?
What if my numbers aren’t strong enough?
If this investor says no, what if every investor does the same?
Does this sound familiar?
Imagine how it’d feel to get inside the mind of an investor, and figure out what they’re really looking for in a funding pitch.
You see, many business owners believe that what will get investors to commit is the strength of their financials.
What they don’t realise, is that their behaviours, actions and mindset are also under the spotlight as well.
In fact, research suggests that rejections by investors are often based on non-financial reasons!
So if you really want to guarantee success for your business’s funding bids, you need to think and act the way the most successful business leaders do.
This webinar will show you how to do this.
You should join this webinar if:
You’re a business owner, leader or manager who wants to win every funding bid by understanding what investors really want.
What you’ll take away:
What investors are really looking for in a funding pitch
Why the ‘inner game’ being played in your head may be the key reason investors say no to your business
Insight into the 3 big differences in the way the most successful 6% of business leaders think and act, including how to model their behaviours and mindsets

Event: Employers Guide to the Kickstart Scheme

Employers Guide to the Kickstart Scheme By Festival of Enterprise

Date & Time: Thgursday 24th September, 10am
To register for free.

Announced earlier this year, the Kickstart Scheme is a £2 billion investment by the government to create job placements for 16 to 24 year olds.

Businesses are now able to sign up to be part of the landmark scheme, aimed at giving young people a future of opportunity and hope by creating high-quality, government-subsidised jobs across the UK.

The government will fully fund each “Kickstart” job - paying 100% of the age-relevant National Minimum Wage, National Insurance and pension contributions for 25 hours a week.

Employers will be able to top up this wage, while the government will also pay employers £1500 to set up support and training for people on a Kickstart placement, as well as helping pay for uniforms and other set up costs.

This session will be covering:

An overview of the Kickstart Scheme
What businesses are eligible
How to get involved and application process
What support Pathway Group can offer to businesses looking use the scheme
