Thinking of seeking external funding but not sure whether to go fir it? Then this taster workshop may help you decide.
"Are external equity investors really good for you - it is as simple as 10% of the pie or 100% of nothing?"
Dr Frank Cave, of IEED at Lancaster University Management School, will give you some pointers to consider based on recent research into the funding patterns of UK technology-based start-up firms.
