Brought to you by LIFT and OneTech, the Funding Readiness programme is designed for existing businesses in the creative, science and digital sectors (the Knowledge Economy) with proven traction or revenue and are in need of support and connections to scale their business from early stage to a Series A seed funding.

After a series of interactive workshops, you will have the opportunity to pitch to John Spindler (CEO of Capital Enterprise, Co-Founder of AI Seed and the London Co-Investment Fund).
