Finance Camp North East
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 preparation that culminates in an exciting event on 21st June 2016 at Ramside Hall, Durham, where businesses with bright ideas meet lenders who want to lend and investors who want to invest. 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.
We’ll 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 introduce you to the people who can make it happen.
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.
Who’s behind it?
FinanceCamp is a spin-out event from the region’s annual innovation conference Venturefest North East.
It’s designed to build on the popularity of Venturefest’s investor introductions, providing more funding opportunities throughout the year and accelerating the rate of innovation within the region’s businesses.
FinanceCamp has been developed with input from businesses and a wide range of enterprise organisations, both local and national. It’s supported by Innovate UK, the Knowledge Transfer Network, North East LEP and North East BIC, with part funding from the European Regional Development Fund.
What happens next?
Once you apply, we’ll be in touch to discuss what you want to get from FinanceCamp. We’ll then introduce you to your own dedicated Camper who’ll help you get answers and explore different funding routes. Then we’ll see you at our big event on 21st June 2016 when you’ll get the chance to meet face to face with the investors you’re interested in.
