Institutional capital is a topic that has likely crossed many of your minds at some point in your journey of starting and scaling a business.

Join us for an exclusive panel discussion moderated by member and expert Nicholas Gill, and two seasoned founders (and Helm members) Alastair Stewart and Denis Kaminskiy. We will delve into the intricacies of institutional capital. You'll gain insights into what a Private Equity and/or VC investor can offer, what it means to have an institutional investor on board, where its limitations lie and what it means for the future of your business.

However, this event is not just about getting a better understanding of the institutional investor — it's a chance to connect with other Helm founders over drinks, learn from their experience, share your journey, and discuss your plans for the future.

During the discussion you'll hear thoughts on:

  • What is institutional investment, and what are the differences between PE and VC?
  • What are other investment forms, like high-net-worth, crowdfunding, AIM (alternative investment markets)?
  • Who is institutional investment (PE, VC) best suited for?
  • Which PE investor is right for me?
  • Difference between majority and minority investors?
  • What does IC mean in regard to business reporting, performance, control?
  • What are the potential opportunities and challenges involved?

After the panel, mingle over drinks with experts and fellow founders to further discuss this intriguing topic!
