I can’t stress enough how great a mentor Karen has been on my journey into business. Her knowledge of all things to do with business planning and finance is fantastic and no matter what the problem, Karen always seems to have the solution. Along with having an extensive business knowledge Karen is also a great person with so much infectious energy, she is a joy to work with.
Rob Conroy, Music & Media
As an overseas investor, I have attended a few of Karen’s events and am pleased to say, that it is the best opportunities for looking for fresh and innovative investments for any potential investor.  Not only is Karen’s events very enjoyable to attend from both a professional and social standpoint, she also seems to have an innate sense to select investments and opportunities that she knows will appeal to her investor’s appetites, whereby the program and itinerary flows systematically from speakers to presentations,  the audience is assured to have a selection of quality investments options at the end of the event. On addition, I know that Karen personally screens and selects each proposal and opportunity, not only based on the potential, profitability and viability of the project, but also based on each individual founder and merit, so therefore I have full confidence and no hesitations in exploring taking up offers and investment opportunities that I receive from Karen’s events.
Pamela, Angel Investor Family Office Asia
“I could not recommend Karen and her team enough through the whole fundraising process. Their support in getting your company pitch perfect ready for their family office fundraising events as well as the calibre of the family offices you have exposure to are just first class. Once you have family offices interested, Karen guides you seamlessly through the process to support both the family office and the company raising needs.  If your company is looking for long-term investors that add value to any startup, Karen and her team will be the ideal partner for your fundraise”. Thank you for your ongoing support. It means a lot to me.

Have some good news, I met with one of our potential investors this morning and he said he is interested to invest and he is fine with the current valuation. I’ll keep him informed in the coming months and so fingers crossed. This proves that you are absolutely amazing, your words are like an oracle, what you say becomes reality.

It was an honour to have an honest account of your journey and achievements. You’re an aspirational lady. We are delighted to have won mentoring time with you.
I met Karen at her Accelerator Program with Key Stage Ventures: ‘Investment Readiness’. I was initially impressed with Karen’s and her team knowledge, so I asked them if they would like to help us raise our first round of investment. We started working together during the Pandemic COVID-19 and within this period we raised £250k with a Family Office and the option of further investment. I liked their approach. They allocate their team members to parachute into your company to look at your strategy, structure and then work with you daily. Karen lead on raising the investment through her global network of investors and also supported us with the Term Sheets; while Matt guided us on our company structure and management. I would recommend and endorse Karen and her team if you wish not only to raise investment but also put together/review your fundraising strategy. We will continue to work within them and be part of their Accelerator Program to present at their Annual Family Office Conference on October 2020.

Karen’s recent interview at Expanse Summit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFyP4WnNdQM was insightful and refreshing. There is little information about how to engage with UHNWI and Family Office investors, yet they require a bespoke engagement approach – this short video is a great introduction and highlights the incredible opportunities in this space for both investors and entrepreneurs alike.

Through her family office events in Mayfair London, I came to discover a gem in the family offices business, she would always make sure you are in the right place to connect with suitable leads. Karen is real asset for any startup wanting to raise considerable funds, the key which will open many doors for founders. (99+) A.

Karen and her firm Gateway2Enterprise are the gold standard when it comes to fundraising for technology startups. Karen is super intelligent, creative, well networked with private investors and extremely professional. She is also a genuinely caring person. I highly recommend Karen and Gateway2Enterprise to anyone.
