Raising funds to support business growth is still critical but economic conditions have changed the appetite for investment and venture capital. In our recent quarterly survey, we examined how growth will be financed and whether exit strategies are still on the agenda for Hospitality and Leisure (H&L) businesses.
Our guest speaker for the morning will be Luke Johnson, Chairman of Risk Capital Partners Ltd, restaurant entrepreneur and currently part owner of Giraffe restaurants and Patisserie Valerie. Luke will examine the valuation trends and availability of finance to the industry. He will also touch on his own considerable personal experiences and share his predictions for 2012.
The areas discussed will provide a useful catalyst for a good discussion and debate. This event also presents an opportunity for you to network with your peers from within the sector.
