Investment Readiness Workshop

Central to Henley Business Angels’ core mission of investing in entrepreneurs is to support their professional and personal progression, as well as provide mentoring and coaching.

To ensure entrepreneurs perform to the best of their ability in their interview, as well as gain invaluable knowledge and advice to further expand and develop their business, we host a one-day Investment Readiness Workshop as a mandatory part of our process.

The workshop provides a huge amount of current information and advice about fundamental entrepreneurship knowledge. In particular, the workshop focuses on:

  • Angel investing
  • Pitching for investment
  • Financial management
  • Banking and debt
  • Legal
  • IP strategy
  • Accounting
  • Human Resources and people management

I found the ‘Angels’ View’, ‘Great Pitch’ and ‘Due Diligence’ presentations incredibly useful as they gave me a great checklist to cover off.”

Anthony Newman, ape2o

Our workshop is hosted by entrepreneurs who have successfully raised finance, our experienced investor members, and experts from our sponsors and supporters, such as Barclays and Harrison Clark Rickerbys.

“HBA had gathered a set of very sharp speakers, on top of their subjects, and in a balanced way, seeing the Entrepreneur side (and difficulties) and the investor context.”


Peter Hayes, Hestian Group

The content provided at the workshop is constantly evolving, adapting and changing to meet the needs of our entrepreneurs and to ensure the information and advice provided is up to date and relevant. After each workshop, we ask our attendees to fill out a short feedback form to regularly adapt and develop our programme to meet the needs and wants of entrepreneurs, and ensure we cover any and all information that is vital knowledge for entrepreneurs.


“Excellent breadth of information and advice provided from a very experienced line-up.”

Adam Maxted, Ltd.

Previously, our Investment Readiness Workshop has only been accessible to entrepreneurs taking part in our application process, however, we now have the capacity to open attendance to any entrepreneurs hoping to gain from the invaluable expertise provided by the workshop.
