As winter settles upon us, it looks as though the are some positive signs of a change in climate for SMEs and Start-Ups. If you're an SME, a Start-Up, or thinking that you should be, this is a must-attend event in which we'll survey what's coming up in 2012 and a great opportunity for investors, companies and the support network to meet and mingle.

MobileMonday London and our lovely friends over at ICT KTN are co-promoting this event in which John Spindler CEO of Capital Enterprise will introduce us to those trends and lead a panel discussion what what it means to SMEs and Start-Ups.

Among the topics we'll be covering:

The government funded "Coaching for High Growth SMEs"

A preview of the changes to Enterprise Investment Scheme rules that are intended to stimulate investment (these will be announced in the Chancellor's Autumn Statement on the 29th Nov)

Arrival of US Investors in the UK with different investment criteria than our native community of investors

The Goldman Sachs and UCL supported "10,000 Small Businesses" accelerator programme as well as the launch of several other new acceleration programmes and accompanying seed funds

Our panel, led by John, will represent the various parties involved (we'll be announcing the speakers shortly), and will feature Ben Whitaker CEO of Mobile poster child, Masabi, who just announced a further funding round of USD 4M who will tell us about the process of attracting investment and other aspects of Masabi's journey.

We're inviting a range of angel investors, VCs and accelerators to attend and contribute from the floor as well as meet and do business in the networking session that follows.

It does seem as though this is a most exciting time for businesses - let's set the scene for a really positive 2012!
