Innovation Breakfast Networking – September

The monthly Innovation Breakfast Networking (formerly NETPark Net breakfast) sessions are informal, informative opportunities designed to help Science, Engineering and Technology companies network with each other.

A peak behind finance raising – so what is it REALLY like?

Raising finance from private investors is not for the faint hearted, but it can be and often is the only solution for developing a high growth business. It can also sometimes open doors to a network of contacts and support which can boost your opportunities for growth. So is it worth the roller coaster ride?

This joint event with Digital Union welcomes three entrepreneurs who have successfully raised a combined total of at least £3m over the recent years, and run some of the most exciting digital businesses in Durham and Newcastle. Our panel for the fireside chat:

• Guest Speaker from Hedgehog Lab
• Gavin Sewell, CEO of Honcho
• Zoe Farrington, CEO of Realsafe Technologies

Their stories of raising funds from crowdfunding to investment houses, will give us an insight into some of the dos and don’ts of getting investments for innovative ideas from an entrepreneur’s perspective.
