Money Matters: Funding Xchange Workshop at GetSet for Growth London

  • Old Poplar Library 45 Gillender Street E14 6RN (map)

Money Matters

One of the biggest challenges to growth for most businesses, big or small, is managing the finances. Keeping good financial records, understanding the plethora of funding options and making the best business case – ‘de-risking’ the proposition as it is sometimes inelegantly described – can be daunting especially for those without a professional financial background. 

This session demystifies the finance and funding process, giving you the clarity and confidence to to approach potential funders to help you achieve your growth objectives.

In this session we cover:

Developing a funding strategy
How to make a business case
Improving your funding proposition
The right tools for the job
Why a ‘Campari & Ice’ is essential to secure the funding you want!

Funding Xchange

Funding Xchange links companies in need of finance with the best debt providers. The premise works on the basis that Funding Xchange has 50-odd lenders signed up and visible on the platform – representing a wide array of underwriting methods. Once a company plugs in its lending requirements, providing information on its situation, funding needs, financial performance and business, Funding Xchange then gets finance providers to bid on that request. It was through running small businesses themselves that the founders, Katrin and Olivier, gained insight into the difficulties of finding funding and set about finding a solution.
