The meeting was held on 27 November 2014, with three companies presenting to nearly 20 members present.
This week three of us KIN members, two with a software business background, had a fascinating meeting with a start-up that has come through the Seed Camp process. It seems that over a hundred start-ups have come through the SeedCamp process since it started up in the UK and Europe in around 2007
There were discussions about two established companies raising finance:
- niche Transport Technology
- Medical Equipment
We also had presentations from:
The Kent Economic Board (KEB) is a working group of the Kent Forum and has a responsibility to pursue economic success themes for Kent.
The Business Advisory Board of KEB met in November 2011, and KIN member Declan Treanor outlined the positive activity and investments KIN have made recently, including three recently made successful investments in a pharmaceutical company, a finance business and a manufacturing company.
The Business Advisory Board took a minuted action to put a briefing on Kent Investors Network onto the KEB website, and for KIN contact details to be circulated to create awareness within KEB, and to be cascaded into the business networks BAB represents.
