Hatty Fawcett had a 15 year career in marketing (including working at Woolworths.co.uk and Moonpig.com) before embracing her inner entrepreneur. She was Marketing Director of start-up online fashion retailer EBTM.com, growing turnover from a few pounds to £3.5 million in two years. She then founded her own start-up, Seek & Adore an upmarket online market place selling handmade work by British designer-makers.
Hatty raised two rounds of seed investment for her business including business angel investment and equity crowdfunding, learning first-hand the challenges founders face when raising investment. On a mission to make it quicker and easier to raise investment, Hatty founded Focused For Business and now offers a range of online coaching programmes and masterclasses which give founders the tools to help themselves. She is also the creator of Crowdfunding Accelerator.

Her practical experience grounds all her work and she is passionate about helping other founders on their journey to success. She runs online Funding Clinics where businesses can explore their funding options and she regularly speaks and blogs on the topic of raising investment.
