  • Raising Finances - Business Workshop with Dom Portman - Tue, 13 November

    Starting out in business is tough. One of the greatest headaches is identifying how much money you need and raising it. Dom has been fortunate to have raised finance from many sources including grants, crowdfunding, bank loans, angel investors and VC's. In this FREE workshop he will cover 4 topics;

    1) Identifying how much finance you will require by projecting profit and loss and cashflow
    2) Realising the strengths of your business and what makes you different from the competition
    3) Types of funding; grants, crowdfunding, banks, VC's, angel investors & friends/family,
    4) Pitching your business

    Dom is a true Midlands success story having studied at Nottingham Trent University and deciding to set up a business here in Worcester. He set up Fancy Dress Worldwide as he had experienced, first-hand, the influence of fancy dress in building friendships at university and now helps others do the same.
