Neil Norman and our Entrepreneurial Tax Team will be at the forthcoming Ready Steady Grow 2019 Roadshow on 8th October with The EIS Association, Seedrs, Equity Gap and lots of other experts talking all things funding, investment and growth.

Ready Steady Grow! 2019 is the best opportunity for entrepreneurs, investors and business advisers to meet and share knowledge on all the exciting funding options and growth financing for start ups and SMEs.

We will also explore:

  • Funding challenges facing small businesses
  • How to make yourself ‘Investor Ready’
  • How funding options such as the Enterprise Investment Scheme, Venture Debt, R&D tax credits and government funding can support you
  • How investors and advisors can gain access to exciting new companies with strong growth potential!
