Enjoy a chance to meet…
Steve Folwell is co-founder and Chairman of LOVESPACE, a multi-award winning storage business. Steve has bundles of experience launching LOVESPACE, growing it to £3.5m revenue with a £20m valuation and raising £8m of capital from VC, strategic and crowd investors. Steve's most recent venture is Muddy Trowel, a direct to consumer outdoor plants delivery business. Muddy Trowel was founded in April 2020 during the covid-19 crisis, with a remarkable fourteen days from inception to launch. Steve will be sharing all of his experience with both businesses, and how you too can launch a new business fast.

This is perfect for…
Startup founders and early-stage entrepreneurs in the process of starting and growing their own businesses. This dinner is open to a limited number of service providers / advisors (unless a TableCrowd partner). Please see the details under the 'Join this table' button.
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 event for you. Also feel free to check out our other events as another might match you perfectly!

The conversation will be…
Steve is a champion builder of digital brands, with broad-based strategic, commercial and operational experience and a track-record of launching and growing digital products and businesses across global platforms. With this in mind, this is a great opportunity to hear from Steve who will be talking about:
✓ Launching and building a viable business - and fast!
✓ How to avoid wasting time on stuff that doesn't matter.
✓ Understanding and segmenting your market beyond the first 100 customers.
✓ Key mistakes to avoid!
✓ The story of LOVESPACE and most recently Muddy Trowel.

Who is Steve Folwell?
Steve Folwell is the co-founder and Chairman of multi-award winning storage business, LOVESPACE, and also the founder of Muddy Trowel, a direct to consumer outdoor plants delivery business, formed and launched during Covid-19 lockdown. Prior to his leap into entrepreneurship with LOVESPACE, Steve spent six years at Guardian Media Group where he was director of strategy and new ventures and has also worked at ITV and the management consultancy, McKinsey.

How it works?
Due to COVID-19, this is a virtual dinner. You can dial in from your laptop or phone. Joining details will be circulated to attendees on the day. We ask for the same respect you would have at a face to face event - turn up on time, don't leave until after the Q&A and tell us if you are no longer able to attend.

What’s included?
A fully hosted experience with knowledgeable speaker and curated group of guests. There will be the usual introductions, talk from our speaker and then a hosted Q&A. Bring your own glass of wine, mint tea or Horlicks!

#MeetandEat

If you book a place and then can't make it, please make sure you tell us. An empty place at the table with your name card is not a great start to dinner!

Prior to his leap into entrepreneurship with LOVESPACE, Steve spent six years at Guardian Media Group where he was director of strategy and new ventures and has also worked at ITV and the management consultancy, McKinsey.

Steve's most recent venture, Muddy Trowel, was founded initially to support growers and gardeners during the covid-19 crisis. Steve heard about the significant impact lockdown would have on the UK horticultural industry whilst recovering from covid-19 himself. As a keen amateur gardener and entrepreneur, Steve believed he could help the industry and fulfil the Muddy Trowel mission of delivering joy to customers whilst making gardening accessible. With help from old friends and colleagues, Muddy Trowel was born in April 2020, with a remarkable fourteen days from inception to launch. Muddy Trowel has been delivering beautiful, in-bloom, plant kits to customers in London and the South East ever since.

Bring your own glass of wine, mint tea or Horlicks!

One of the TableCrowd hosting team will be on hand to help you get set up to take part virtually - you can join early if you need a hand! They will then run the event as close as possible to our face to face format - with a few adaptions (no seat move needed!)

All the joining details will be sent to you on the day to your registered email, so please make sure you check the right inbox!
