Started by:

Join us for dinner, drinks & a chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs, followed by an after-dinner talk and informal Q&A with Alex Dunsdon, who’ll talk about what really goes on in venture funding - the stuff no one tells you!

Alex runs Saatchinvest. They put £50k to £300k in at seed stage for simple, disruptive ideas and he acts on the board of many of the companies he invests in. He also co-founded The Bakery London, which runs tech accelerator programmes to get start ups and scale ups to market with big brands. He has a wealth of experience and will be sharing valuable insights over dinner.

Proud to partner with Taylor Wessing.

Price includes private dining experience with after dinner speaker, 2 course dinner with wine and highly curated and relevant networking.


P.S. TableCrowd are offering complimentary cab rides home (£15) thanks to their partner, Gett (Get Taxi!) on first download of the app. Details on the night.
