Join us at this joint event with the London Stock Exchange for a discussion about the scaling journey for new ventures and the role that the London Stock Exchange can play in this process.

Mark Fahy will outline the LSE’s ‘ELITE’ programme of structured engagement that develops and supports ambitious private companies through their next stage of growth through the delivery of education, business support, mentoring and access to an ecosystem of professionals fostering growth and innovation.

Mark will then chair a panel that comprises both entrepreneurs and investors, who will discuss the many funding models and options available to scale ups.

Registration and coffee will be available at 18:00, and the talk commences at 18:30-20:00. The evening will conclude with a networking reception.
