Finance in the South West: Flagship event returns for 2018
PKF Francis Clark is set to be hosting their annual flagship ‘Finance in the South West’ event for the sixth time, this year.
Delegates at last year’s event described ‘Finance in the South West’ as “an excellent summary of the competitive funding landscape” and “really good, a successful regional event with an impressive line-up of keynote speakers”.
More than a dozen sources of funding, covering grant, debt and equity, as well as business support agencies will be presenting this year. ‘Short and sharp’ presentations will allow delegates to initially assess which funding stream or funder best matches their requirements.
PKF Francis Clark will be providing useful pointers to getting ‘investment ready’ and a couple of businesses will present on their experiences in growing their business (presentations that are always well received by the audience).
Chris Eddowes, of PKF Francis Clark, who is leading the team organising the event said: “This is one of the region’s flagship events for businesses interested in business funding and more than 150 people joined us last year at Exeter Racecourse. Organising such an event with so many speakers is an undertaking but the very positive reaction we receive from participants more than justifies the hard work put in by our team”.
‘Finance in the South West’ is aimed at owners looking to expand their business – or people planning to start their own business venture – and will take place at Exeter Racecourse on Wednesday 21 February from 8am to 1pm.
The morning will include targeted sessions depending on the business needs of delegates. One will be aimed at start-ups/businesses which have been trading for less than two years while the other will be for those trading more than two years. There will also be networking opportunities for owners and managers to speak to presenters on a ‘one to one’ basis or make an introduction for a follow-up meeting.
