This Webinar Series

As we continue to navigate uncertain times, entrepreneurs around the world are adjusting their approaches to business and building new capabilities to meet their customers’ current and future needs.

This special webinar series from The Funding Game, run in partnership with the British Library Business & IP Centre, is designed to help you steer confidently through this period of uncertainty so that you and your business can emerge the other side stronger than ever.

Expert speaker

Paul Grant knows what it’s like to be on both sides of the funding fence. As an entrepreneur he raised funds for his own business, securing capital from business angels, bankers, family and friends, and even a government grant.

After seven years of trading, he exited his business in 2003 and was invited to join a private equity company, Capital Partners, eventually heading up the business angel division. Here he had access to nearly 5,000 active angel investors and reviewed more than 1,000 business plans every year. During this time Paul learnt a lot about why so many businesses fail to secure the funding they need in the start-up and growth phases.

Paul has met with many investors, bankers, and venture capitalists over the years and in the course of his work has uncovered what they are really looking for. More importantly, Paul has developed an approach to raising capital that works. He is keen to share with you what he has learnt as an entrepreneur and as an industry insider.
