AllBright North director Lou Cordwell confirmed for event


An entrepreneur who actively supports the growth of female-led businesses is among the latest speakers to be confirmed for BusinessCloud’s ‘Secrets of how to get tech funding’ event on November 23.

Lou Cordwell is the chief executive of Manchester-based digital design studio magneticNorth, which she set up in 2000.

Earlier this year, she was appointed as director of the North at AllBright, which combines an angel network, crowdfunding platform and support services to discover and fund companies led by female entrepreneurs at all stages of growth.

Cordwell and Anastasia Kenyon, digital entrepreneur and CEO of social booking site Lifestyler, are the latest speakers to be confirmed for the event.

The breakfast event, which will be shining a spotlight on the whole issue of funding for tech, will run from 7.30am to 9.30am and take place at the UKFast Campus in south Manchester.

It will be hosted by editor and award-winning journalist Chris Maguire, who will be hearing directly from companies and funders about their experiences.

BusinessCloud will also be examining and discussing the pros and cons of a variety of funding options, including bank loans, private equity funding, angel investment and crowdfunding.
