Fundraising Stories with Women Entrepreneurs


Fundraising expert Julia Elliott Brown, the CEO of Enter The Arena talks with Amanda Thomson, Founder and CEO of global wine brand Thomson & Scott - the first wine company to let consumers know exactly what they’re drinking. Last year, she raised £1 million on Crowdcube to fuel the growth of the business. She unpacks the concept of "stupid questions", the importance of a strong team and gives an insight into using government tax relief initiatives. Wine is one of very few F&B divisions not required to publish what’s in the product. On a mission to change that, Amanda left a career in journalism to build a business providing honest bottles of bubbly. In this episode you’ll discover… ● Why “stupid questions” don’t exist (whether asked by entrepreneur or investor) ● Why gathering a strong team around you is key to creating the groundwork for success ● An insight into using government tax relief initiatives (looking at SEIS and EIS) to get your business off the ground For the full video interview, go to
