In response to the market uncertainty that has been created due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the UK Government announced on Monday 20 April 2020 a new package – the ‘Future Fund’ – that provides financing to UK start-ups and scale-ups in the tech and life sciences sectors in the form of a convertible loan which is invested directly by the Government.
We have arranged an informative Zoom webinar with Goodwin’s Sophie McGrath and Adam Thatcher to provide an overview and the implications of the Future Fund and answer some of the most frequently asked questions on:
- Matched funding
- Economic terms – discount, interest, term
- Conversion and repayment events
- Covenants and corporate governance
- Eligibility criteria
We will not be conducting a live Q&A so please submit your questions in advance on the registration page.
