Having a game-changing idea isn’t enough. You need a clear value proposition, sound business case, and a solid understanding of what public and private investors expect from your pitch or proposal to progress it to product phase. This free half-day masterclass is designed for individuals and businesses looking to gain help and assistance with acquiring funding from public and private sectors. SMEs are especially welcome.

The Money Magnet Masterclass is a program delivered by experts in attracting both government and industry funding to further ideas and business. It teaches attendees potential red flags, critical value points and how to position pitches to boost their idea’s power to attract investment.
