EVENT – Access to Alternative Finance – 23rd November 2016

The EISA Greenshoots is delighted to announce it’s second event in Manchester – Access to Alternative Finance.

The event, at Barclays Rise, will explore the high benefits of the Enterprise Investment Scheme and analyse how Alternative Finance can include EIS as part of a leveraged financing product for small business.

November 23rd – 17:30 Arrival for a 18:00 start – 231 Deansgate, Manchester, M3 4EN

Speakers include the new Director General of the EISA, Mark Brownridge, who will provide an update on the Enterprise Investment Scheme and very timely response to the Autumn Finance Bill that is released the very same day. Richard Faulkner of Barclays Corporate banking will explore how Barclays Debt product has come in alongside EIS funding and to conclude we will have a case study from Funnel Music, who used crowdfunding to secure the SEIS funding to really drive their start-up business.

The evening will conclude with drinks and canapés most probably resulting in a stumble to the Christmas Markets.
