The Knowledge Peers’ Autumn Exchange: 28th November, Kia Oval.
London’s leading business innovation event - The Knowledge Peers Exchange, returns on Thursday 28th November with two linked conferences in one day, covering key critical issues for businesses; Innovative Finance for Growth, and Building Value in the Cloud.
The day will be full, comprehensive and hugely intensive. Vital stuff for those with serious interests in how technology and changing funding patterns are becoming crucial and fundamental to our everyday business life in an increasingly competitive landscape.
Over evening drinks, we'll also be joined by the Commonwealth Games of England team, who will talk about how plans for Glasgow 2014 are progressing.
Morning:Innovative Finance for Growth
Alternative financial services in the UK have given small businesses access to finance which has otherwise been unattainable. Yet, many businesses are unaware of these innovative tools and how they can take advantage of them.
The morning will explore the very merits and shortcomings of this nascent industry by analysing the various players and ideas in the field.

Some of the themes explored in detail:
The Alternative Funding Showcase: We showcase some of the best platforms in the Alternative Funding space and provide delegates with direct access to industry leaders. Panelists include top level management from Crowdcube, Funding Circle and many more.
The Evolution of the Angel Market and the Private Equity Response to Recession: Business Angels have always played a large role in SME fund raising. Yet, recent changes in the financial landscape have forced this traditional form of investment to change the way it functions. Featuring industry leaders such as Modwenna Rees Mogg, this seminar will explore the many ways this model has responded to new financial actors.
How to redefine finance through technology- Fintech Evolution! As an industry mover and shaker, FinTech has the potential of changing the way we look at financial services. Including MarketInvoice CEO Anil Stoker, this session brings together a host of speakers who will discuss the evolution and advancement of FinTech from a variety of vantage points.
Building Value in the Cloud
The exploitation of technology is critical to their success yet many organisations are eager to move beyond a discussion of ‘The Cloud’. Presenting innovative research, thought-leaders unafraid of contrary opinions and real life case studies, Exchange 2013 will focus the attention on what it has always been about. How technology, has, is and will provide a commercial and operational advantage.
