What is FinanceCamp?

FinanceCamp makes it easier and speedier for businesses to get hold of the money they need to grow.

It’s a programme of preparatory workshops that lead to a series of one-to-one meetings with investors at VentureFest. Whether you need a £1,000 start-up loan or a multi-million pound equity funding round, you’re on the right path to the right funder.

Our vastly experienced partners Haines Watts, NatWest, TEDCO and Ward Hadaway will give you the knowledge and tools to:

  • explore the different sources of funding available to you
  • weigh up what fits you best and
  • prepare your business for investment

Then, when you’re fully prepared, we’ll connect you with the people who can make it happen.

Every year we organise hundreds of investor meetings that lead to countless conversations, collaborations and deals. Watch the video below to find out more in under 60 seconds!


Who is it for?

FinanceCamp is open to all enterprises in all sectors: large and small, well established and newly launched, commercial and non-profit making.

The programme is flexible to suit your needs and to get what you want from it. Knowledge. Opportunities. Contacts. Investment.

What kind of investors can I meet?

Venture capital fund managers, angel investors, social investment funders, banks and crowdfunding platforms are among those taking a pitch at FinanceCamp. You can meet them all face to face on one day, under one roof.

What happens next?

Register for VentureFest and let us know you’re interested in raising finance by ticking the box. We’ll be in touch soon after to discuss how FinanceCamp can best support your objectives and book you on to any appropriate preparatory workshops.

Then we’ll see you at VentureFest when you’ll get the chance to meet face to face with the investors you’re interested in and possibly even seal a deal!
