Financing and Funding Growth Companies and Managing the Investor

This practical programme, led by experienced Chairs and NXDs, focuses on key issues which every NXD should be aware of and caters for those with interests in all types and sizes of organisations – listed, private, entrepreneurial, SMEs, public sector and not-for-profit. Each interactive session has been extended this year to provide even more vital learning to cope with a variety of changes facing Non-Execs.

Session 1: Financing and Funding Growth Companies and Managing the Investor

Speaker: David Ovens COO Archangel Investors Ltd, former Investment Banker

This session will cover various aspects of what you can expect if you are to get involved with early stage, high growth companies, including crossing the chasm from product development to commercial success, the importance of cash, engaging with your markets, working with your investor group and the role of the investor director. Finally, the session will cover the importance of the role of the NXD during the exit process, such as through a trade sale or IPO.
