The Grange St Paul's Hotel

Urbanofinance brings together entrepreneurs and investors to explore areas of common interest and build bridges between different companies and organisations.

Urbanofinance’s business breakfasts see experienced entrepreneurs, successful investors and expert advisors discuss the process they go through what companies need to do to find capital investment, financial backing, lending for growth and selling their business, and the channels available: venture capital, seed capital, peer, institutional or individual investment.

Experienced business people will also share their stories of how they turned an idea into a business – and the lessons they have learned along the way to create profitable, valuable companies.

These events are for entrepreneurs, business owners and directors of companies at any stage in their development, where the focus is on networking, exchanging advice, information, opportunities and future collaboration.

Our guest speaker for this breakfast event is Jo Haigh, an award-winning business woman who has helped buy and sell over 300 companies including 3 of her own.

Jo will be passing on her experience on how to gauge and maximise the value of your business, developing exit strategies and creative ways of raising finance.
