Venture Capital, as an industry, suddenly finds itself at a critical monument in its life as finally credible alternatives have arrived. They are under the same disruptive pressure which they have backed companies to do for the last 20 years. Their traditional mantra, change the economics and attack the old slow moving existing players is coming back to bite them. Two critical changes are forcing change; the first is that the amount of investment needed to start and grow a business is small and falling and second, the old VC structure is too higher cost in real and commercial terms. Venture Capital – Welcome to disruption!
The event will focus on the current funding platforms in the UK including Seedrs, CrowdCube - focusing on what we have learned so far from crowd funding, micro-loans and micro-funding and where we think the future of funding is heading. If you're thinking of new money in the next two years, you should be at this event.
