The Evolution of Alternative Forms of Entrepreneurial Finance – 10 years after the Global Financial Crisis


Tuesday, 20th June 2017,  Middlesex University and ISBE One Day conference.

Venue: The Board Room, Middlesex University (Hendon, North London).

This one day conference will examine the ongoing development of alternative forms of entrepreneurial finance a decade after the Global Financial Crisis. During this turbulent period which has seen both banks and private equity participants withdraw from the early stage entrepreneurial finance markets in the UK and most developed economies, a large number of alternative forms of early stage entrepreneurial finance have emerged. These include crowd funding, incubators and accelerators, angel groups, asset finance, alternative public investment, government interventions into grants, loans, mezzanine and pure equity finance. This conference will present the latest research and practitioner evidence from the UK and developed economies, addressing how the early stage entrepreneurial finance escalator has evolved.
