Are you considering how to finance your company’s next move? Are you preparing to launch a new product, explore a new market, buy new equipment or expand?
Whatever you need investment for, FinanceCamp will help you to explore your options and find out what’s best suited to your business.
Whether you’re an ambitious young company or have 100 years behind you, we’ll speed up and simplify the investment process to meet your objectives.
Finance your ambitions
FinanceCamp works with you to consider all viable sources of finance. Working with experts including Ward Hadaway, we’ll help you to find to find the best fit for your business. Then we’ll introduce you to the people who can offer it to you.
You’ll leave FinanceCamp with:
- an overview of funding options open to you
- an understanding of the offers and expectations of different finance sources
- a new network of contacts
- inspiration from other companies that have taken similar paths
- and even the possibility of a deal
Representatives from potential sources of funding will be waiting to discuss your business needs at the end of the process. We’ll be bringing together dozens of funders and investors including venture capital fund managers, angel investors, social investment funders, banks and crowdfunding platforms.
We’ll introduce you to the contacts you’d like to meet and provide the opportunity to discuss your business needs face to face.
You’ll be invited to take part in workshops designed to get your business investor-ready and help you to begin thinking about the questions funders will ask.
At our Growth Hub Live Accessing Finance drop-in session you’ll be able to speak to a whole series of experts who can give you answers to any questions you might have on topics including intellectual property, law, accountancy and market research.
Then join us on Wednesday 24 May at Ramside Hall to hear words of wisdom and warning from other companies who’ve raised finance in the past.

Why FinanceCamp works for me
“Mercia targets regions of the UK that are typically under-served by sources of risk capital. We see events such as this as integral to our deal flow in sourcing high-growth businesses in the North East. We met Refract at FinanceCamp, proof the format works.”
“The programme is an excellent platform to bring together ambitious North East businesses with investors dedicated to providing a tailored funding solution appropriate to their stage of development.”
“Meeting multiple investors, angels and VCs, in a single afternoon can help identify the right potential funding partner quickly. Last year we met with a number of interested investors and received multiple investment offers. How else could you do that in a single afternoon?”
“It was really exciting to see such a spread of opportunities in front of us. It became as much about us choosing the right business partner as it was about selling ourselves to funders. In one afternoon we were able to meet with a wide range of potential investors and immediately narrow down those that were right for us – a task that ordinarily would have taken months of correspondence and meetings.”
“As the leading early stage investor in the North East, we’re always looking for regional entrepreneurs with global ambitions. FinanceCamp brings together some of the best start-ups and scale-ups and ensures they are prepared to meet with investors.”
