Startup Diaries

We’re currently neck deep working on our iPhone app (we know, we know, it’s about time). Thanks to Iggy Hammick, Alok Matta and  Thomas Mason who joined our lunchtime “Testing & Tapas” lunch last month to look at a very raw early version and to offer thoughts and feedback. We’d love to hear your views, so if you’d like to get an early look and have your say in what we’re doing, please get in touch – @tablecrowd

We’re over the moon to have been asked to both exhibit and pitch at the Global Web Summit in Dublin at the end of October. We’ll be joining a bunch of other startups showing our wares and battling it out on stage in the pitch competition. Dublin is going to be bursting at the seams, but we managed to book some bargain digs on Airbnb. We were asked to speak at their last community meeting to help community leaders use the ‘groups’ functionality and received a kind gift of a voucher for our next Airbnb stay. Very timely!

TableCrowd Startup Women Meet & Eat was great fun to be part of. We had a tremendous line up of startups and their press and blogger contacts. Nice to see write-ups on The Wall, Upper Street and Chloe Nicholls blog following the event. Julian Blake from Tech City Insider joined the dinner and we met the following week for an audio interview about TableCrowd. We are now part of the Tech City Insider 100!

We were invited to pitch at the Digital Entrepreneur dinner event at Adam Street private members’ club. A community already sold on meeting over food (this was a good start!). It was an opportunity to tell more people about TableCrowd and get feedback on our concept and plans. It was great to be part of the event. Congats to My Bubbles who raised funding off the back of their pitch at this event!

Popped into Digital Dumbo (focused this time around digital apprenticeships for local young people) before heading to the Casa Negra for a women in tech dinner hosted by Balderton. A really great evening surrounded by a very inspiring and successful bunch of ladies, plus just one gent from Balderton.

We were invited to General Assembly to speak to their digital marketing class. Also speaking was Zoe Arch of Craft Candy, Charlotte Henry, journalist at The Wall, Tiffany Philippou from onefinestay, Chloe Nicholls from PublicBeta and Robyn Exxon from Dattch. Nice to catch up with everyone, meet the students and eat Pizza!

Back to work! Hi ho hi ho….

Join our Startup Engine dinner this week with Rachel Cheal of The Growth Lab. Your chance to ask questions of an experienced finance director!
