I attended a Gateway2enterprise business investment workshop organised by Karen and found it excellent for navigating the eGenius future course through the complexities of business funding. The excellent range of speakers and opportunities to network with both investors & businesses made for a very varied and enjoyable day.

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.

Alexander Groves, Founder at Crossable:

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.

De Anna Guerreiro-Founder and Managing Partner at Athlon Family Office and Vinecrest Investments

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.
