There are plenty of obstacles that get in the way when launching and growing a business. The main ones are usually – cash, and getting your name out there. We’ve all had those great ideas, but without the money to back them – how can we build upon that little nugget of a notion? And what about getting your company into the spotlight? How do you secure media coverage for your awesome startup? Our two dinners next week cover these topics – join in the fun and sign up today.
Bootstrapping to success: Frugl by name, Frugal by nature
Many startups follow the route of bootstrapping to get their business off of the ground and the founder of Frugl, Suzanne Noble, did exactly that. She has managed to build an award-winning marketplace that connects Londoners on a budget with great events and offers by being financially frugal.
Join us for dinner where Suzanne will share her story, including the highs and lows of making your vision a reality, and tips for those planning to bootstrap rather than turn to funding from day one. With her background in PR, she’ll also share tricks and tips on how to achieve media coverage without using an agency.
Dinner is at 6:45pm on Monday 29 February at Tom’s Kitchen, St Katharine Docks
