Christmas Networking Soiree with Funders

December 11, 2018

WeWork Paddington

Are you looking to build relations with powerful financiers and get connected to top lenders & investors?

In the spirit of Christmas, we are offering you the chance to spend the evening sipping on your favourite drink whilst connecting with various funders offering all types of funding.

It doesn't matter which stage or sector your company belongs to. If you are an entrepreneur in need of funding or looking for a support to grow your venture, then pack your bag with business-cards and join us for this evening full of opportunities!

*Great News! There are showcasing opportunities available for businesses that wish to maximise their brand exposure.

Some of the funders you will meet:

Guest Speaker: Annik Petrou | Founder at Speaker Express

Annik has over 30 years experience in being scared of speaking, declining speaking opportunities due to the fear of looking silly in front of peers and other nerve related issues. This all reached its peak in 2011 at a speaker training course – enough of wasting time worrying about what others might think – Speaker Express was born.

Since then, they have helped thousands of entrepreneurs to successfully pitch for investment and funding, gain the confidence to push their business from home office to the stage, speak on TEDx stages, pitch on Dragon's Den and land big corporate contracts.
