Business expert, author and Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones, talks us through why the "Show me the money!" event is needed and her vision for what it will deliver. 

"Access to funding still appears too often on the list of challenges claimed to be affecting small businesses."

Emma Jones MBE

“Admittedly I meet small businesses every day who are on the look-out for funds but I just as regularly meet quality funders who have assets to lend and the inclination to support ambitious entrepreneurs.

The challenge, I’ve concluded, is that the two groups just don’t meet enough!

If you were in business during the days of the dot com boom you may recall First Tuesday; an incredibly popular weekly event that connected people with money, with those who wanted it. Investors wore a red sticker and StartUps a blue one. It eased the speed of connections, the chance of doing a deal, and StartUps being built. They were heady days but the concept remains sound – the more connections made, the more deals will be done.

That’s why we’re hosting ‘Show me the Money!’ on 25 June. We’ve contacted all the funders we know; from banks to online lenders, crowdfunders to angels and large corporate accelerators. The audience will be over 100 small businesses looking for information, support and capital.

Three entrepreneurs, who have between them successfully raised millions, will offer their top tips. But this event is for any business owner, whether you’re looking for £1,500 or £1.5 million.

I hope to see deals done on the night – and to see you there!”

‘Show me the Money!’ will be hosted on 25 June at KPMG Winter Garden, Canary Wharf. It’s free for Enterprise Nation members to attend and £10 for non-members.
