About this event

'Founding in your 50s;

At 54, Sue Nelson set up Breakthrough Incentives, an independent tax consultancy focusing on R&D, and took it from zero to a Β£2.5m profitable turnover company in just 5 years when she then sold it to the multinational professional services company EY.

The company has processed over 1,000 R&D tax claims, generating more than Β£60million for small tech businesses across the UK –an average of nearly Β£50,000 in cash or tax relief per claim. In the process, this led to the creation of around 150 new jobs.

Join us to hear about:

- Founding a company in your 50s

- Sue's journey through 3 different careers 

- The transition of going from employee to employer

- How to differentiate your business to make it stand out 

- Growing a company for sale
- ...and much much more πŸ”₯

This month our fireside chat is part of the Spring Forward Festival.
