Informatics Forum, 10 Crichton St, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

What is meant by Investor Readiness? It is good to have a viable investment opportunity and quite another to be investor ready. What do investors look for? What turns them on? What turns them off? What to ask them?

Come along and find out the key points that investors want to know about your business opportunity so they can decide whether or not they are interested in investing.

The central aim of the event is to get young companies exposed to and beginning to understand what different types of investors are out there and how to approach investments as part of the preparation process for EIE 2017;

There will be 10 investors and up to 90 invited young companies in total – 10 tables, one investor per table to start with 9 companies seated around each table;

After a brief intro at 6.30pm, each investor will briefly introduce themselves (c.2 minutes) to the table then spend the remainder of each 10-minute slot answering questions from the companies in a ‘get to know and understand the investors’ format;

After 10 minutes (there will be an audible signal), each investor will get up and move to the next table and repeat the process;

This will continue until 5 tables each are completed (5 x 10 minutes, from 6.35pm to 7.25pm);
