Burges Salmon is pleased to be sponsoring the Young Company Finance (YCF) annual conference for the third year in a row.

YCF is a monthly publication that has been reporting since 1998 on all aspects of the financing of early stage high growth companies in Scotland, from start-up to maturity, flotation, or sale. As the only publication devoted exclusively to this sector, YCF gives reports of all significant investment deals, and news and commentary on the young company market generally.

YCF’s 2023 conference, entitled ‘Exits: Seen from both sides’, takes place in Edinburgh on 15 September 2023. YCF’s conferences take a broad theme that give a variety of speakers the opportunity to set out their own knowledge or experience in different ways.

The conference will see presentations by investors (business angels and VCs), young companies at start-up stage, entrepreneurs who have successfully taken their companies to exit and beyond, and a summary of exits across the UK and USA to illustrate norms and trends. Speakers will be highlighting the main exit issues to be considered in the context of a company’s lifetime success, and how they can be balanced to achieve an optimum outcome for both sides.

Danny Lee, a partner in the firm’s Edinburgh-based Corporate team, comments on this year’s sponsorship: “Our multi-disciplinary teams navigate a range of complex and interesting transactions and in supporting YCF we hope to further underline the strength of Burges Salmon in supporting fast-growth businesses.”
