Following a dramatic upheaval in his life 6 years ago, Jonathan found himself having to start again. After a year of recovering from a serious illness, he started a property business, using funds raised from private investors. Jonathan quickly developed his skills in pitching for finance, raising 6-figure sums for his projects. Two and half years ago, he diversified into the black makeup sector and has just launched a new cosmetics business in the United States, winning maximum financial support from Virgin Start Up.
In the last 5 years, Jonathan has secured over £2.7 million in private investment. This has transformed the range of business opportunities that were available to him.
Jonathan can show you how he did it and open up similar amazing opportunities for you.
