A special thank you to Finance Birmingham, BSN Chartered Accountants and Jolyon Barker of Chrysalis Solomotive for giving up their time to speak to us.

During his talk Jolyon provided an insightful account of his first-hand experience as to what it is like to secure growth funding from a business owners perspective.

The seminar covered:

• An overview of sources of growth capital including “alternative finance” from non-traditional lenders such as Challenger Banks, Asset Based Lenders, Peer to Peer Lenders, Mezz Funders and Equity Funders.

• Business requirements of different types of funders

• Accounting and capital considerations

• Legal Considerations

• Debt vs Equity

Nick Romluc, MD of fast growing specialist music production equipment retailer (for both professional and private studios) Giraffe Audio, said:

“There are so many growth funding options on offer today it is really quite difficult to get a handle on it. This event gave us a good overview of the market, what is likely to work for us and what we need to do to secure that finance. Most helpful and well presented. ”
