A Game Changing Approach to Technology Financing

Eleven Brindleyplace, Brindleyplace, Birmingham, B1 2LP, UK
May 11, 2011

The West Midlands is a growing region in technology innovation and development, but how can this model of innovation be sustained when there isn’t sufficient funding available to support new companies?

Join Oscar Jazdowski, Head of Origination for Silicon Valley Bank in the UK, for a discussion on financing options for growing companies in the UK and SVB’s unique and game-changing approach to technology financing at this seminar hosted by Friend LLP.

Bank funding for early-stage technology companies is extremely difficult to obtain as the profile of these companies generally does not fit the banks’ conventional models of lending; often being loss-making and asset-poor.  With no bank debt available, technology companies are often forced to sacrifice a greater proportion of equity in return for VC funding, leading to significant dilution for existing shareholders. Silicon Valley Bank adopts a different approach to the high-street banks, and is expanding into the West Midlands to present a solution to this funding gap.
