David Stevenson, Director of AltFi, gave an overview of the alternative finance sector – clarifying its relevance to the entrepreneurs in attendance. David also explained that the industry is split (broadly speaking) into peer-to-peer lending, equity crowdfunding, and online invoice finance. Graeme Marshall, Founder and CEO of FundingKnight, then delved deeper into the peer-to-business lending space. Mike Royston, Business Development Manager for Crowdcube, conducted a similarly insightful exploration of the equity crowdfunding route. Finally Daniel Britton, Managing Director of Financial Fairytales, shared his experience as fundraiser on the Crowdcube platform. The session concluded with Q and A time.
