What Others Are Saying
It was an honour to have an honest account of your journey and achievements. You’re an aspirational lady. We are delighted to have won mentoring time with you.
As an overseas investor, I have attended a few of Karen’s events and am pleased to say, that it is the best opportunities for looking for fresh and innovative investments for any potential investor. Not only is Karen’s events very enjoyable to attend from both a professional and social standpoint, she also seems to have an innate sense to select investments and opportunities that she knows will appeal to her investor’s appetites, whereby the program and itinerary flows systematically from speakers to presentations, the audience is assured to have a selection of quality investments options at the end of the event. On addition, I know that Karen personally screens and selects each proposal and opportunity, not only based on the potential, profitability and viability of the project, but also based on each individual founder and merit, so therefore I have full confidence and no hesitations in exploring taking up offers and investment opportunities that I receive from Karen’s events.
Many thanks for hosting the event – certainly some interesting opportunities and some great guests. Best of luck over the pond.
Learning and having experienced keynote speakers attend was a valuable aspect of the conference
Karen gave me some fabulous advice on an investment deck she really knows her stuff and would recommend anyone to reach out to her
Have some good news, I met with one of our potential investors this morning and he said he is interested to invest and he is fine with the current valuation. I’ll keep him informed in the coming months and so fingers crossed. This proves that you are absolutely amazing, your words are like an oracle, what you say becomes reality.
I attended a ‘Lunch and Learn’ workshop organised by Karen. I’m preparing to fundraise and the workshop was pitched at just the right level to demystify what’s involved when fundraising in relation to crowdfunding in particular. The length of the workshop was good too, timed to make sure we weren’t overwhelmed with too much information. Helpful slides, well presented. All in all, I now feel ready to start the fund raising process with confidence.
I have been trying to raise seed funding for about 2 & 1/2 months. At times it has been really difficult but people like Karen make it all worth it because they understand the struggle. She helped guide me when she didn’t have to and asked for nothing in return. Her feedback and guidance have been invaluable and I cannot thank her enough. A great businesswoman and an even greater human being. Thank you!
Karen is a big personality with lots to offer and extremely approachable. If you are looking to take your startup/Business to the next level, then she has vast knowledge and a large network of investor that respect her on a professional and personal level. We met and networked with some amazing mentors on the day of the Gateway2Enterprise accelerator program in Oct 2020, that have made a huge impact on our way of thinking and have allowed to take our vision above and beyond. We’d like to especially thank, Matt Black, Cedric Torrosian, Roshni Durve and all the other mentors that shared their time with us. Thank you and Best wishes.
I was honoured to a speaker of one of Karen’s ESG Spring Investor event. I’ve known Karen for years and she is amazing to work with in the Family Offices. She is a trusted investor, friend and partner to co invest with.
I attended the Investments and Crowdfunding Workshop in Manchester and found it very informative. Not only did the group receive excellent advice and guidance about the development of Crowdfunding platforms we also had access to legal experts, accountancy advice and a local Entrepreneur who took questions from the floor. Fantastic experience and information – Thank you, I would highly recommend it.
Karen has remarkable energy and enthusiasm for fundraising and investor relations. I attended a family office investor event in emerging technologies organised by Karen and I was highly impressed by the eclectic range entrepreneurs and investors at the event. I attend many events in the venture capital and startup sector and none were as eye-opening and stimulating at the one that Karen organised. BRAVO! I look forward to keeping in touch with Karen and hopefully working on projects together in the future.
Last evening was probably the best meeting I have attended. You managed to keep us to time (Ruthlessly) and despite the transport difficulties you had a goodly number of wealthies. The judges set the tone and were surprisingly kind and constructive which set the scene for the greet and meet session. I felt the rivalry, for when I came up somebody had moved our stand into the corner – a matter soon corrected. We had a lot of interest and I will respond to the players next
I attended your short seminar at Olympia which I found very inspiring. Could I kindly request a copy of the ’50 slides’ which you mentioned we at your presentation.
Karen made it easy to approach investors in my business. I met Karen when she spoke at the 2018 Business Show on Access to Funding and Investment Finance Grants Masterclasses for SME’s. I approached Karen after the event to attain a more personal advise for my business. Although a busy schedule at the event, Karen gave pointers and advised on areas I had not considered. The experience was eye opening and I would recommend a one to one opportunity for other upcoming entrepreneurs.
