The BLN Cambridge Discussion Dinner, ‘What can we learn from TechStars?’
27th September, 17.30 start, to be followed by roundtable discussion, cocktails, and dinner from 19:30.
We will be joined on this evening by Tom Keller, Managing Director of TechStars, the most successful technology business mentoring and incubation programme in the US. TechStars are considering partnering to deliver a programme in Europe. You will find him an incredibly stimulating individual and he would be interested to hear your thoughts on how Techstars can support the growth of the new wave of businesses that Cambridge, the UK and Europe need to continue to be successful.
BLN events bring entrepreneurs running high growth businesses together to share thoughts, meet peers, investors and discuss issues of common interest in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Events are run across the UK with further discussion dinners in London, Oxford, Edinburgh and Bristol over the coming months.
We expect approximately 12-16 companies to be present at the event, along with 5-6 active investors. Previous attendees at Cambridge events include CEOs, founders, recycling entrepreneurs or board members from ARM, IP.Access, Biowisdom, True Knowledge, Arakis, Serentis, RedGate, Ubisense, Plastic Logic, Abcam, Nujira, Bango, Alphamosaic and up and coming leading high growth businesses.
This event is being run with the kind support of BDO.
There are many opportunities to attend networking events but we like to think that The BLN events are both high quality and a little different. You can see feedback from previous attendees here.
Places are limited so a prompt response is necessary to be considered for a place.
