How do you position a growth stage tech company to be recognised as valuable to potential investors? What do these investors look for in a business? And just as importantly what should you look for in your investors?
All investors look for some form of return, understanding the structure of this return depends on the type of investor and the maturity of the venture.

James Fulforth, a partner in the Corporate & Commercial team at Kingsley Napley, will talk about some of the specific legal issues which may be considered
Partner Simon Halberstam will be chairing the session.
