Cresco Innovation CEO Jo Derbyshire is on hand to offer expert advice at two investment surgeries this autumn.
The Access to Finance Surgery is a forum where selected companies seeking growth capital have a one-hour meeting with business experts.
The surgeries are free, and are ideal for companies who are craving stout advice from experienced business people.
Selected companies seeking growth capital can talk to Jo, as well as experts from Shadow Foundr and Edwards Accountants, and business angel investor and mentor Paul Jenkinson.
Shadow Foundr’s Jason Kluver is a founding director of the company, a private investor network and crowd-funding platform which has raised more than £20million for early-stage businesses.
Edwards director Neil Taylor is a member of the Research & Development Consultative Committee and has expertise in technology companies, SEIS, EIS, R&D Tax Credits, Cloud Accounting and Patent Box.
The Access to Finance Surgery is supported by the D2N2 Growth Hub, who aim to power up your business by facilitating the market for business services in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
