MEIF Masterclasses 2021

A series of two virtual Masterclasses on Raising Finance with the Midlands Engine Investment Fund

The Midlands Engine Investment Fund is pleased to invite you to join us for a series of two Masterclasses on Raising Finance. The first event, focusing on Debt Finance, will take place on the 12th May 2021 with the follow-on Equity Finance Masterclass taking place on 1st July 2021.

Senior Managers from the British Business Bank will be hosting these events with fireside chats with leading debt finance providers and equity investors across the Midlands, who will be sharing their expertise, best practices and lessons learnt.

The events are open to businesses looking to raise finance as well as advisers and the wider intermediary community supporting smaller businesses, with an opportunity to ask our expert panel questions during the webinars.

Our first masterclass will explore Debt Financing, addressing funding for start-ups and early-stage businesses, and growth finance for more established businesses. The Masterclass will also consider alternative finance options and the private debt marketplace. This webinar will feature experts from MEIF Fund Managers working across the Midlands including BCRS Business Loans, First Enterprise – Enterprise Loans, Maven Capital Partners and The FSE Group, as well as The Start Up Loans Company and alternative finance provider Frontier Development Capital.
