Engine Shed Quarterly Investment Briefing

In November 2017, Engine Shed launched a new Quarterly Investment Briefing – an event to bring the investment community in the West of England together and to:

  • Share good practice
  • Build awareness of the investment opportunities
  • Explore investment trends in the region and nationally/globally

If you are an active investor, or would like to be one in the next 6 months, please join the Quarterly Investment Briefing mailing list here: http://bit.ly/ESQIBFORM



If you are a founder of a start-up or scale-up company, and you are raising investment or would like to connect with investors, we welcome your one page proposition summary, and clear investment ask – please share it via email with briony.phillips@engine-shed.co.uk and we’ll circulate it to our investor community at the next available opportunity (this currently happens quarterly). We also encourage you to attend the different pitch events that are happening in the region. Take a look at TechSPARK events listing and Engine Shed events page to find the next one.
