About this Event
Join KPMG, NorthInvest and Nexus at The University of Leeds for the next in a series of KPMG Breakfast Briefings. This session will help you better understand the tools that can unlock fundraising opportunities and maximise value in the future, whatever your exit plan is, and regardless of how far down the road it may seem.
NorthInvest Entrepreneur Coach Charlotte Scott will talk you through strategies and available channels for securing seed funding.
KPMG’s Mergers & Acquisition (M&A) team are experts in advising business owners on raising finance and the right exit strategy for them, while working alongside them to maximise the value of their businesses.
Ben Taylor (Head of Tech M&A) and Joe Bainborough (Corporate Finance) will give insights into the next stage of fundraising plus:
- Things to consider when maximising the value of your business
- Valuation methodologies
- What to expect from the due diligence process and how to prepare
- Investment and exit options
You will also have the opportunity to hear first-hand from an entrepreneur who has successfully maximised the value of their business.
