Co-hosted by NatWest’s Accelerator Programme and NEDonBoard, we are pleased to welcome NatWest’s Mids/South West & Wales region (Bristol, Cardiff, Birmingham and Milton Keynes) business cohorts for an opportunity to network with our NED, Board and Board Advisor community.

This online event connects NEDs and board advisors with start-ups and SMEs looking for their skills and expertise.

To attend, please register in advance further below.

To get the most from this online networking event, we request:

  • NatWest’s Accelerator members to please provide a short overview of your company and where you could most benefit from the addition of board level, advisory board or mentor expertise;
  • and for NEDonBoard board members to share a succinct overview of how you can best support businesses in a NED or advisory board member capacity. These details will be shared with fellow attendees for networking purposes.

There will be online ‘break-out rooms’ – so come prepared with your 1-minute elevator pitch.

Are you a member of the NatWest Accelerator? – Why Attend:

Both non-executive directors and advisory board members bring entrepreneurs a wealth of resources, including contacts, partners and access to resources. They contribute their experience and expertise and complement the skills of the entrepreneurs and his/her team. They provide a sounding board, manage complex decision-making and contribute to the growth and success of the business. In addition, their presence promotes investor confidence by increasing the value of the business and likelihood of attracting external funding.

How NEDonBoard can help entrepreneurs increase the likelihood of success of their companies? NEDonBoard members are experienced professionals who are looking to contribute their skills, expertise and experience to businesses. NEDonBoard can help entrepreneurs access this pool of talents.

NEDonBoard Members – Why Attend:

Businesses within NatWest’s Accelerator programme typically fall into at least one of the following categories: high-growth; FinTech; Climate or Purpose-Led (aspiring to B-Corp certification or similar). Businesses within the accelerator programme have an average turnover of £450,000 (some will have turnovers significantly below or in excess of this), and are at varying stages of board maturity, with some only beginning to think about the value of advisory board members or NEDs; whilst others may be proactively seeking advisory board members or NEDs. This event provides opportunity to connect experienced business leaders, supporting the development of businesses in successful and sustainable growth.

We look forward to welcoming you.
