I attended the Investor event in Manchester last Thursday, Karen led the day with energy, honesty and in her unique open style captured the audience from the outset. She spoke with clarity and passion demonstrating her own extensive experience in the Fintech industry and providing knowledge delivered by the expert speakers throughout the day ensuring we gained information on the whole investment cycle and options available. Karen spent time with each attendee and gave individual support to guide. I came away buzzing with ideas and further understanding into this revolutionary industry. Thank you Karen
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 and businesses made for a very varied and enjoyable day
Hi Karen, Thank you for having me at your event yesterday. It was truly an eye-opening and amazing educational experience. I met wonderful people (including yourself, of course) and can now see a way forward.
The most insightful part of the workshop for me was hearing from real investors and understanding things from their point of you and how best to communicate with them - always tell the truth!
I would certainly recommend the workshop to friends interested in using a crowd funding platform, as it was one intensive day with all the information you need to know about raising capital for your business.
A great event Karen. I'm not a fan of networking but yesterday was full of fantastic people and I came away with lots of new knowledge to digest! Thanks again.
Thank you for that very insightful investment workshop yesterday. I particularly loved the bits on the pitch deck. Thank you.
Thank you Karen for the interest, belief and support you and Steve have shown Genius Wifi so far.Genius Wifi has been bootstrapped from the start through personal investment and bank lending but in 2016 we recognised the need for external support and wider investment in order to grow. Through contact with others who have worked with you and after reading previous testimonials I contacted you in October to explore the potential of us working together. You introduced us to Steve Dunleavy within your Team who specializes in Invoice Finance and together you have sought to identify suitable solutions for us, not forcing a preferred option but exploring and explaining a range of choices.It has been refreshingly easy to talk and be open with you. Both you and Steve are great to work with, quickly building a rapport, identifying the issues and proposing potential strategies. You are both able to challenge appropriately and drill down to swiftly establish the key information. It has been reassuring to receive your balanced feedback and encouragement for the future and we look forward to a long and profitable partnership during 2017 and beyond benefiting from your extensive network of contacts, industry experience, knowledge and inspiration.
Karen is a true entrepreneur and natural mentor. Having met Karen in 2012 we have remained in contact and her support, guidance, experience, advice and inspiring talent is formidable in the world of startups and growth. I have been inspired by Karen to keep going when times got tough and keep focused when objectives are being achieved. Karen has a rich background in success and some failure which all true entrepreneurs have but reaches out and goes further than many entrepreneurs I know. I would highly recommend Karen to mentor and guide with all stages of business and her pitching advice and connections for investment is invaluable.
