These are a series of Access to Finance Surgeries, hosted by Shadow Founsr, where selected companies seeking growth capital have a free one hour meeting with COO of Shadow Foundr, Jason Kluver, Edwards director Neil Taylor, CEO of Cresco Innovation Jo Derbyshire and business angel investor and business mentor Paul Jenkinson, who is also on the Advisory Board of Shadow Foundr and John O’Donnell, Business Finance Manager, D2N2 Growth Hub.
Shadow Foundr was recently privileged to sit on some judging panels for Venture Fest in the West Midlands.
Around 50 early stage businesses pitched their opportunities, with the final 9 going head to head at Birmingham’s NEC in late June.
