Everyone needs help shaping their plans ready for the investment community. For developers of technology, projects or services, getting the right expert advice can make all the difference when it comes to overcoming the ‘valley of death’ between innovation and commercialisation. "There may only be one winner, but I hope that the advice and feedback given during the session will help many others there on the day" - Tim Cornelius
Five short-listed candidates, who may be individuals or representing companies or projects, will have the opportunity to give a 10-minute elevator pitch in front of our so-called ‘dragons’. Each of the candidates will then receive five minutes of immediate feedback, and the winner will benefit from a specially tailored workshop, sponsored by Atlantis, with one aim – to help him, or her, raise funds.
Tim Cornelius will chair the session, with Jock Maxwell Macdonald, Director, Peel Hunt; Nick Stamp, Executive Director, Macquarie Capital; Cameron Smith, Partner, Ashurst lawyers; Ben Brewerton, Director, FTI Consulting; and Jonnie Cox, Equity Sales, Cantor Fitzgerald as his ‘dragons’.
How to Apply
If you would like the opportunity to put your business case to our expert team of 'dragons', please submit a maximum five-page standard business plan (which will be treated in complete confidence) to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Investment Challenge’ in the subject line. The deadline for submission of the business plans has been extended to the close of play on Friday 7 April. The short-listed five will be notified of their success by mid-April so they can organise their travel to, and accommodation in, Glasgow. Good luck!
