We’re all on a mission to create clean and green businesses that protect the planet for the next generation, and the one thing that has the power to accelerate that critical task more than anything is funding.

Whether it’s crowdfunding, government grants, private equity investment or debt financing, what works for one business might not work for another. How do you decide what’s right for you?

This FREE workshop will help you identify the right kind of funding for your business.

With two streams – start-up and next-level growth – you’ll get advice and support that’s tailored to you and delivered by two Clean Growth UK Specialist Advisers:

Work-stream 1: Startup Funding and Seed Capital

Delivered by Clive Bonny of Strategic Management Partners. Clive provides due diligence advice, intellectual property protection and networking support to enable fundraisers to improve their investability.

Work-stream 2: Growth Funding

Delivered by Lawrie Chandler of Edale Investments, an FCA regulated investment business and practitioner that helps firms access growth capital or cash flow improvement.


Run across Clean Growth UK’s three hubs in Brighton, Liverpool and Portsmouth.
