Startup Funding Club is back to Home House with a new investor event
Startup Funding Club (SFC), an award-winning seed investment fund and network of business angels, has gone back to Home House to hold a new edition of the Crocodile Lair, the name its popular pitching and networking events receive at the prestigious private members club.
These investor events are one of the key ways in which SFC brings together business angels and entrepreneurs, allowing the latter an opportunity to showcase their businesses to a crowd of potential investors. This new edition of the Crocodile Lair was held on the 7th of November at Mayfair, and attracted many new faces interested in the start-up scene.
The evening was introduced by SFC’s CEO Stephen Page and the sponsors of the evening: Stackhouse Poland, SFC’s preferred insurance brokers; Jyske Bank, an international private banking firm; and SFC Bennett Brooks, SFC’s joint venture for accounting services. Following this, the pitching began with Shout Out UK’s invitation to attend their launch event of their booklet on the 17th of November, “Brexit: A Youth Perspective,” after this, five other high-growth start-ups were introduced by their founders.
Shout Out UK were not the only ones to forward an invitation to the audience. SFC used the occasion to announce their December event, which will have a more educational character. The event will be aimed at those who have already invested or are thinking of investing in early stage companies through investor-friendly SEIS and EIS schemes.
SFC’s events provide not only great business opportunities, but are also popular as social and networking gatherings for investors. The presentations were followed by a drinks and canapé reception that enabled an ideal atmosphere for start-ups and prospective investors to get to know each other and get into more detail about the businesses. Most of companies enjoyed a lot of attention and interest, which can quickly translate into investments.
Startup Funding Club combines its award-winning Angel Syndicate with the Startup Funding Club Fund to act as a facilitator for young British businesses to receive funding. The firm specialises in SEIS investments, and allows High Net Worth and sophisticated investors to support high potential start-ups either directly or through a diversified managed portfolio approach.
