Following on from the success of our 2014 events, rebuildingsociety.com would like to invite borrowers, lenders and introducers to a one day roadshow focusing on the alternative finance industry. The Leeds-based event will take place on 23rd April 2015, 9am to 4pm.

Hosted by rebuildingsociety.com, the event will provide an overview of the evolution of peer-to-business lending market. Whether you’re looking to borrow growth capital for your business, lend money to UK SMEs, introduce business to rebuildingsociety.com, launch your own crowdfunding business, or just want to learn more about the sector from one of the market’s most innovative players, this event should prove enlightening.

Before Lunch, we’ll be running a Dragon’s Den-style session where real-life entrepreneurs make their pitches for investment. Delegates will be invited to submit questions for the prospective borrowers and to decide on whether they feel they would take the opportunity to invest in the business.

The event will provide the opportunity to network with members of a growing and thriving industry, interact with our sponsors and — of course — meet some of the rebuildingsociety.com team. The event will be catered by with delegates enjoying a free breakfast, buffet lunch and an afternoon snack. This will provide ample time to discuss the alternative finance market and real experiences with the other attendees.
