VCs vs Angels: it’s the age-old question that all innovative businesses face. Where do you go to get the right investment? What are the differences between investment from venture capitalists and angels? More importantly: which is right for your business?

This session is for entrepreneurs with innovative and market disruptive ideas seeking investment. Join Michael Berger from Together Money, who will share his wealth of experience guiding high-level investments.

We will discuss:

  • Typical level of investment (£25k-£2m)
  • Valuation expectations
  • Assessing the market size
  • Level of involvement
  • Restrictive terms
  • Funding types available ((S)EIS, unrestricted, CLNs)
  • Route to the investors
  • Why doesn’t everyone just watch and apply through Dragon’s Den?
