Back in October, Great Business announced a series of free educational sessions for business owners, entrepreneurs, and potential investors to cover the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and other business finance topics. The sessions were so successful that another round has been planned.
Over the course of the next few weeks, four sessions will be held:
- Tuesday, 19 February – Oxford, The King’s Centre
- Thursday, 21 February – Reading Town Hall
- Tuesday, 5 March – London, The Emmanuel Centre (Two sessions – morning and afternoon)
Space is limited and these classes may fill up quickly, so book your space soon. For more information on what the sessions will cover and to register, click here.

Many businesses have already found success due to funding through SEIS, such as Charlotte Knight. Charlotte founded G’Nosh, a brand of gourmet dips that are sold in high-end shops across the UK. When Charlotte started her company, she realised she needed funding to get where she wanted to be. A former banker herself, Charlotte turned to alternative sources of finance and secured investment through SEIS. Hear why she thinks SEIS is such a beneficial scheme, as well as the advice she has for those just starting out in business.
And Michael Hayman, co-founder of Start Up Britain and campaign company Seven Hills, chaired the event. In this interview, Michael discusses why he feels SEIS is so important for small businesses in the UK, especially right now.
