Phew, what a day, been all over and then headed back into Manchester to attend the largest attended northern startup 2.0 event, hosted at KPMG (good lad Steve still supporting ) and sponsored by Startup Essentials.
This is an event run by a friend of mine, called Manoj aimed at bringing together the Northern startup community to entice them to network, share resources and just work harder together. So what was tonights event about ?
\*Discussion on finding investment money, who has it and what do you need to do to access it.
\*How to value your company sensibly
\*Understand what makes a VC tick and what returns are they looking for ?
With over 65 people there, the room was heaving and with some heavyweight Investors attending as well some great conversations started and open discussions around money, valuations and how to grow your company.
So if you are in the north of England, get along to one of these events, we had a VC fly in from the East Coast tonight to talk to the companies and look for prospective investments...and if you want to see what you really missed out on, then go here and oh Im on slide 3 with my son Jordan, he was talking Startup Essentials all night.
