Jenny has over 20 years’ experience of facilitating SMEs access to investment, both in the UK and internationally.
Jenny sits on the Steering Group for Emerging Technologies and Innovations for Innovate UK, is on the Advisory Group for the Enterprise Research Centre, member of the Mayor of London’s SME and Finance Working Group and sits on the Advisory Board for the new London Co Investment Fund.
Jenny will be joined on the panel by Jennifer Strachan (Angel Investor and Executive Director, Startup Guernsey) and James Ede-Golightly (Founder and Director, ORA Capital Partners) to discuss Angel investing in the context of those seeking to raise capital or invest in early stage companies in the Channel Islands.
