Virtual private roundtable AUGUST 4th – 14:00 – 15:00

“Companies are fundraising to help scale, versus preserving or defending against the unknown like we saw in the height of the pandemic”   

[EY, 2021]

As every high-growth finance executive knows, securing the next round of investment conjures up as much excitement as it does anxiety. The exercise is hard work, hard won and all consuming. Achieving the best valuation takes forethought. On the one hand, knowing what the investor is looking for. And on the other hand, being able to demonstrate it.


Increasingly, investors are looking beyond the typical criteria of early growth, big market and defensible proposition. Venture Capital firms also examine the underlying operating model and its ability to scale rapidly. In this regard, the finance function is often the fly in the ointment, reliant on manual processes that scale costs as fast as the business scales growth.


As a finance leader looking towards your next funding round, what can you do today to prepare your business for tomorrow? Join us for an hour with one of London’s most active Tech VCs, as their Managing Partner shares a candid, private view on what they’re looking for in their next stellar investment.

Who Should Attend?

Senior finance and transformation decision-makers such as CFOs, Financial Directors, Controllers and other finance-focused executives, with an interest in transforming their finance function and the growth potential of their organisations.
