Enjoy dinner drinks and a chance to meet…
Oliver Bridge is co-founder of Cornerstone, a regular subscription and delivery service of razor blades and shaving supplies for men. Cornerstone was founded in July 2014, and quickly became a competitive alternative to traditional high-street retailers, selling men's shaving products via their flexible subscription based service. They have to date, raised $5.73m from three investment rounds and are fast becoming a thriving British success story. Oliver will be talking about succeeding in the male grooming industry with a subscription based business.

This dinner is perfect for…
Business owners, CEOs and management level.
If you'd like to join but don't fall neatly within the above categories, please email us at hello@tablecrowd.com to discuss whether this is the right dinner for you. Also feel free to check out our other dinners as another might match you perfectly!

The dinner conversation will be…
Oliver is passionate about both the success of his own brand and also supporting fellow entrepreneurs, embarking on their own business journeys. On the night he will be speaking about:
✓ Building an on-demand subscription business - the key ingredients.
✓ Finding and then growing your customer base & scaling operations.
✓ Raising capital and finding the right investors for your business.
Expect to be inspired by Oliver as he shares the story of Cornerstone to date, and to leave with ideas and inspiration for your own business. Take this opportunity to speak to Oliver and your fellow diners, who are facing similar industry challenges and opportunities as you, informally over dinner.

Who is Oliver Bridge?
An entrepreneur since the age of 15, Oliver always hated shaving and suffered quite badly with sensitive skin and shaving rash. Also, like most men he hated shopping, particularly for toiletries - with a preference to order things online, to save time. One day, whilst queuing in Boots for some overpriced razors - which he knew would give him a shaving rash the next morning, he had the famed 'eureka moment' and just thought to himself "couldn't I do this better myself, this is terrible!". With this, Cornerstone was born.

What’s included?
You get a private dining experience with a knowledgeable speaker, 2 course dinner with wine or 2 soft drinks plus highly curated and relevant crowd.

Oliver launched his first e-commerce business BiggerFeet.com at the age of 15, selling large shoes over the internet. After that he went to university, where he launched Genderchecker.com (a search engine for names). After leaving university, he worked for a product innovation consultancy called Happen, helping companies like Unilever to develop new products and brands. After that he worked as a technology analyst for a venture capital fund before starting Cornerstone in 2013.
