Fundraising Expert Julia Elliott Brown talks to Amanda Thomson about "stupid questions"

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
