Event Description

On Thursday 3rd October 2019, ExIST (Exeter Initiative for Science & Technology) will be holding its quarterly breakfast event at the Met Office Collaboration Building from 8:30am - 11am focussing on how STEMM businesses can access capital to support growth.

Growing a STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine) business can be challenging without access to suitable financing, so join us for this expert-led overview of the main routes for funding and learn how you can access them.
