Join IC Resources and Cambridge Wireless for an interactive workshop focusing on start-ups and scale-ups and brainstorm a range of topics including funding, strategy, and finance.
Following the talks the participants will split into groups to discuss the workshop topics. Each group will have a facilitator to promote discussion and collate specific case studies, lessons learnt and successful (or unsuccessful) strategies. Everyone will re-convene after 45 minutes with each facilitator presenting their team’s conclusions and recommendations to the collective.
Funding: How has the landscape changed since lockdown? What are the implications of loan vs equity? How much can you compromise / give away? Is the Future Fund the way forward?
Strategy: Stay the course or pivot to profit from the crisis? Can you engage differently with investors and customers? Do you need a different exec team to deal with the new challenges? Should you take investment at low valuations or try to ride out the storm?
Tactical: How to deal with new communication channels? How to identify struggling or under-performing employees? How to manage morale and new stresses on both yourself and your employees? Furlough vs full steam ahead? Is there the opportunity to upgrade? Grow? What about contractors? University students?
Finance Workshop: How important is cash and cash flow forecasts? Balance sheet – any leverage for demonstrating value / loans? How to manage accounting and finance demands when other demands are shouting for attention? What government support or other support is there?
Free webinar lasting 90 minutes - 24 June @ 15:30
