Local law firm launches networking events for fast growth businesses – Join them on March 1st


Local law firm Thomas Eggar (recently merged with Irwin Mitchell LLP) has launched Rapid Rise (R2), a new series of networking events aimed at bringing together fast growth businesses and the investment community from across the South East.

The first session will be held at the Crawley offices of PwC, Thomas Eggar’s joint partner in creating this new initiative, on Tuesday 01 March between 17:30 and 19:30. An expert panel will share their experiences as entrepreneurs, investors or long-time advisers to the fast-growth community. On the line-up is:

  • Leading entrepreneur and investor Tom Nixon, founder of NixonMcInnes in 2000 and coach to up and coming businesspeople.
  • Thomas Eggar corporate partner Jon Snade, specialist in and advisor to early stage, fast growth businesses.
  • PwC Tax Director Natalie Langley, who has been working with fast growth businesses and entrepreneurs in the technology and digital sector for 18 years.

The panel will lead discussions on topics such as tips for fundraising success, incentivising staff, government incentives for investment and growth, the international arena and building culture, structure and strategy.

Jon Snade commented: “Fast growth businesses are incredibly exciting, but it can be challenging for companies to find the funding and support they require when they need it. Our Rsessions offer an opportunity for entrepreneurs to network with like-minded individuals and investors, as well as get practical advice to drive their business towards success.”
