Mind blown!! Karen’s Gateway2enterprise Investment Readiness Accelerator Program exceeded all of my expectations. It was intensive and highly rewarding. All of the speakers were excellent, highly engaging and extremely relevant. With several of the speakers having already gone through the process of starting up successful companies, it was fantastic to get an insight into their experience and mindset.
The associated Investor Summit also afforded the opportunity to pitch to, meet with and get invaluable feedback from real investors. Thank you Karen!!
I enjoyed the event, thanks for the invite. Various good conversations afterwards. Some fascinating and varied pitches representing a wide spectrum of ideas.
I recently attended an Investor event at MMU Manchester by Gateway2Enterprise. It was wonderful! All the speakers including Karen were just appropriate and all inspiring. I highly recommend Gateway2enterprise events to any SMEs who want to take their business to the next level.
I was honoured to be on the Family Office panel for Karen’s Online Spring Family Office/Investor Conference on Impact/ESG/Technology Family Office Trends in March of 2021. She and I first met some years ago in Tunisia where we were both speakers at an event supported by various governments including Germany, Saudi Arabia and South Africa. Not only does Karen have a strong grasp on impact investing for investment fund mandates but most importantly, she has on-the-ground experience and networks in emerging economies.
I look forward to her Family Office Summit on 22 July 2021 in London.
Karen is a very lovely person to work with and I personally intend to do more work with her great organization.
I was honored 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 had the pleasure of working with Karen in 2019 as a Key Note Speaker and Judge for our Africa Start Up Gate Summit 2019. Karen has continued to support our Tunisian Eco system and that of the MENA countries and her experience that she shared with the delegates at the Summit was and it to this day far reaching to inspire and educate Entrepreneurs in this region. I also know that Karen continued her networking with Inviting some of our Delegates to London to her Family Office Events and some of our Entrepreneurs attended her Accelerator Program. Looking forward to working further with Karen for the future of not only Tunisia as we grow but also the MENA area.
I enjoyed your event – you assembled some interesting companies, kept the pitching tight, fielded a top of the line panel, and led us out with a song – what’s not to like!
I worked with Karen on a challenging fund-raising project, on which she worked tirelessly and faultlessly. Her energy and enthusiasm did not flag once until every part of the project was complete. I would thoroughly recommend working with her.
A great event Karen. I’m not a fan of networking but yesterday was full of fantastic people and I came away with lots of new knowledge to digest! The excellent range of speakers and opportunities to network with both investors & businesses made for a very varied and enjoyable day. Thanks again.
Thank you for the wonderful event yesterday. It was very inspiring and informative.
Many thanks for hosting the event – certainly some interesting opportunities and some great guests. Best of luck over the pond.
I have worked with Karen on many occasions. She has always been professional, courteous and engaging. We are currently reviewing a joint investment together and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services.
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.
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.
Karen was very detail-oriented, responsive, and helpful as I was searching to secure seed funding for my startup. Thank you Karen!
