Mobile Monday London

Apr, 09

We have some short presentations for you and a panel session representing all aspects of the financial value chain from VC to Angel Investor to Entrepreneurs and we have a few surprises up our sleeve too to stimulate the debate. We all know we're in a credit crunch. And none of us are immune to its effects but that doesn't mean that you can't still be successful in these challenging times. Sometimes we can't see the wood for the trees and simply don't know or don't give the time to investigate what the finance options are and what's involved. This is your chance to get those finance questions answered from the people who know about these things without paying them a fortune for consultancy advice and we will aim to answer questions relevant to businesses at all stages in their growth from start-up to grown-up.... is it impossible to get finance right now? What are the options open to a mobile business? Should I move my business to the US to have better chance of finance? What's the reality when you sell to a corporate? What are the Government sponsored opportunities available? What are investors looking for right now? How do I make sure that my valuation isn't diluted? Are banks really able to help? How long will the credit crunch last? What is value in this day and age? Is there still money to be made in the mobile industry and if so in which sectors? Which corporates and network operators are investing in smaller businesses? Are competitions and grants worth the effort? Is a merger or acquisition more hassle than it's worth? And I'm sure there will be plenty more. Rest assured it will be a lively panel and there will be plenty opportunity to ask lots of questions and contribute to the discussion. In addition to the panel session, some of our experts in the room will also be running surgery sessions during the networking afterwards. Here you can get more in-depth advice on a one-to-one basis without being overheard by everyone else and discuss your specific next steps and find out which programmes and pathways are worth pursuing based on your business needs.
