Other Events

Angel Investors in Liverpool as part of the IFB
1st & 2nd July 2014 at St. George's Hall, Liverpool 

As part of the IFB the UK Business Angels Association are bringing their Investment Summit to Liverpool on the 1st-2nd July. This is the first time the annual summit has not been held in London and could be a great way to promote your business at the largest Angel networking event in the UK. There are opportunities to “pitch” for funding and there are also opportunities to “showcase” your business to the entire conference as one of the “top 15 NW businesses to watch” (not a funding pitch).

Information about the conference can be found here, and if you wish to apply please email carly.hearn@ukbusinessangelsassociation.org.uk


There are plenty of other events happening across the City including our very own Pop Up Networking Event in our Liverpool ONE Pop Up Shop.
