As a new business, it can sometimes to feel impossible to reach established brands and corporates. Even when you know your offering could be of massive value to them.

Join us for dinner, drinks & a chance to meet fellow entrepreneurs, followed by an after-dinner talk and informal Q&A with Ken Valledy of Tech2Brand. T2B makes connections between exciting tech startups and established brands. He works across all sectors and is currently working on briefs for car manufacturers, fashion brands, alcohol brands, retail brands telecommunication brands and mobile gaming brands

Ken will share insights on how big brands approach working with startups, the types of ideas and deals that appeal and well as tips on how to present your tech to a Marketing Manager.

This dinner is open to tech founders and entrepreneurs.

It will be an amazing opportunity to network with other like-minded entrepreneurs, as well as to talk to Ken informally over dinner about what you're working on.

Proud to partner with Natwest who are providing their beautiful private dining room with views out onto Trafalgar Square for a delicious 3 course dinner.

In January 2014, after 13+ years of Brand Marketing experience, Ken left the corporate world to start Tech2Brand, which focusses solely on connecting 'brands' with new start-up 'tech' innovation.

t2b leverages strong network connections in 'Tech City' and other global tech hubs to identify what start-up tech innovation is available to help brands achieve their objectives and to gain competitive advantage.

Before Tech2Brand Ken was a brand marketer. At his last company (ABInBev), he held many brand positions, including the UK Brand Director for Beck’s Beer. His last ABInBev role at the company was as the Consumer Connections Director, here he was responsible for the company’s digital marketing strategy across Western Europe.
