Startup Diaries – October / November
A few more updates from TableCrowd HQ. We’ve been busy as usual.
Joined a Sharing Economy committee led by Sooquini to talk and make plans for the industry. This tied in nicely with TableCrowd’s Sharing Economy Startups “Meet & Eat” that had been in the diary for a while. You can read how it went here and see the follow up press that the dinner generated on Tech City News, here. Also look out for the podcast on Tech City Insider that will be published soon.
We were selected to appear in PITCH at the Global Web Summit, as well as exhibit. The #WebSummit is described as the ‘meeting of 10,000 of the brightest minds’. Flattered. The event was enormous with 100’s of inspiring companies descending on Dublin from all around the world. And to follow the Day Summit was the Night Summit – bars and live music venues packed out. It was a really valuable event to be part of; although it was quite ironic that there was no WIFI on day one – perhaps the reason for the rebrand from ‘The Web Summit to ‘The Summit’. Whilst in Dublin we made front page news in the national press, The Irish Times.
We dropped a last minute application into Vator Splash London and we made it through into the semi’s and then the finals, which means we were up on stage at the home of great sunsets, Level 39, pitching in front of investors and sponsors on 7th November. An impressive high profile event with a great calibre of speaker and startups.
There have been some great dinners this month for entrepreneurs. We had experienced Finance Director from The Growth Lab, Rachel Cheal, join us to answer those finance burning questions. We also had dinner with Sian Skelton from Taylor Wessing, on the topic of Intellectual Property law.
