Emma has co-founded several businesses over the last 18 years, including a Marketing Agency, Grant Support organisation and Equity Investment (Investment Readiness) business. Through her knowledge of sales and marketing, she has not only supported founders to launch, scale and grow new innovations, but also guided them to secure over £20m equity funding from Angels, funds, and crowdfunding platforms. Over the last few years, she has built a black book of investors and has personally worked with 100’s of companies over her career.
Emma’s core skills include access to finance, sales and marketing and building partnerships for growth. As an ex-business owner, she understands the ups and downs of the business journey and is an empathetic advocate of the founders she has supported, based on real life experience.
Her ability to connect individuals has led to many long-term partnerships built up over the years. Emma has organised events that connected over 1200+ businesses, Angel Investment Summits, Pitch events and has reviewed 1000’s of investment decks. Her deep understanding of what investors want to see and hear makes her not only a great all-round mentor but also the potential key to unlocking your next fund raise.
Having joined the EEN in Nov 2019, her knowledge of the governments landscape of support, both financial and actual, has grown tenfold. This has led to several of her clients unlocking hard to find funding that is not always visible to the general viewer.
