Business Breakfast: Financing innovation and growth of SMEs

Are you interested in financing your innovation or the growth of your business? Do you want to learn about various sources of finance for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs)? This business breakfast could be for you.

The growth of small and medium sized enterprise (SME) can be an exciting and dynamic learning experience for entrepreneurs and managers.

The challenge of identifying innovative products or markets with enormous growth opportunities, setting-up growth target, and mobilising the necessary finance necessary to make the growth target a reality, can be one of the great learning experiences in life. All ventures need finance-taking in investors' money today and anticipating a significantly large return in the future. To grow a business, the entrepreneur or manager must find the financial resources needed from internal sources (within the company) or external sources (outside the company), communicate effectively with investors, and create the harvest value expected by investors.

This business breakfast focuses on helping you understand the wide range of sources of finance for innovation and growth of SMEs. More specifically, it covers key topics, such as:

  • Business lifecycle and finance
  • Sources of finance for SMEs
  • Bootstrapping
  • Business angels
  • Venture capital
  • Crowd funding
  • IPOs
