Investor Pitching Fast Track
Equity investment can be an excellent way to fund growth and investors can bring more than capital to the table, many bring a wealth of expertise, experience, and contacts that serve to further expedite growth objectives. But how do you reach investors and how do you optimally prepare in order to ‘stand out’ from the hundreds and thousands of approaches they receive.
Following OxLEP’s hugely successful ‘Pitch to the Panel’ event, we are running a 2-day Investor Pitching Fast Track workshop, specifically designed to take you from zero to comprehensive pitch deck able to withstand investor scrutiny. Workshop modules have been specifically designed to share best practice and cover the essential elements of a pitch deck, whilst guest speakers have been chosen to highlight what investors look for, and the Harwell Campus location provides the ability to collaborate closely with and learn from your peers in small groups throughout.
Day one of the two-day event follows an intensive agenda of core learning, peer discussion, guest presentations, and hands on support from specialists. Day two allows for additional pitch deck building and preparation before ‘pitching practice’ begins. Each delegate will have the opportunity to pitch their proposition for 10 minutes with 5 minutes Q&A and invaluable feedback from their peers.
What better way to prepare for your investment journey than being surrounded by specialists able to inform your pitch content and trusted peers helping you finetune your delivery?
What delegates say
"A Fantastic two day fast track workshop with OxLEP Business. It was great to pitch our proposition to the delegates today. So many great take aways, top tips from industry experts, feedback on our investor pitch and I couldn’t have asked for a better group of delegates to share the time with, some truly inspiring and incredible people."
