There comes a point in time with a start-up or scale-up company when the thought of an injection of cash is considered. The success of a certain TV show might lead you to believe finding an investor is the best option however they are other options that should also be considered before making a final choice. Attendees of this event will benefit from the knowledge Innovation Martlesham (IM) has gained from working with over a hundred companies who are part of the IM cluster at Adastral Park, Ipswich, UK. This session will provide a good overview of the key issues anyone considering a cash injection to their company need to consider.
