  • Get a two page summary of your company's proposition in our delegate handbook

Previous Investment Forums Matthew Smith of CMM Technology LLP pitched for investment at Connect Yorkshire’s Forum in 2006 said: 'It was great exposure for us. We received some really good feedback but even better, we met an investor that has subsequently invested in the business.'

Our last Investment Forum held in June 2007 attracted over 180 delegates and included investors from: Noble Fund Managers, Bank of Scotland Growth Equity, YFM Private Equity, IP Group, TechInvest, Beer and Partners, Acceleris Corporate Ventures, EnTrust, 3i plc, Enterprise Ventures, Pentech Ventures, NESTA, Northern Venture Managers, Viking Fund, Partnership Investment Finance, and South Yorkshire Investment Fund.

Exhibition Space
In addition to the above we are also offering exhibition space to companies who do not wish to make a presentation on this occasion but who wish to raise finance in the next 6-12 months.

This is an opportunity to network with Connect’s Investment Forum delegates and allow you explain your technology in an informal environment. It offers the first step towards raising the cash you need.

So with applicants having a greater chance of meeting the investment community, what you do have to loose?
