Description

Join us at Startups Live on November 21 for a jam-packed afternoon of inspirational keynote speeches and funding and marketing workshops!

Startups Live: Risks and rewards of a £10m mindset

Startups Live has been created for the founders of businesses with aspirations to emulate our Startups Awards winning alumni.

Designed to inspire and share invaluable insights from the leaders of companies with a scale-up mindset, this event will feature talks and presentations from some of the UK's most successful entrepreneurial brands.

Through the experiences and start-up stories of some of the UK’s most successful growing brands, each session will delve into core areas such as marketing and funding and the inherent challenges growth companies face to propel them towards that £10m milestone.

Kicking things off, co-founder and CEO of Mr & Mrs Smith, Ed Orr will present a keynote detailing just how the brand has become one of the UK's most respected travel companies and the challenges the business has overcome along the way. We'll have Damien Kennedy, co-founder of low-fat, no-sugar ice-cream and snack brand Wheyhey, revealing the many informed risks the company has taken to hit a multi-million turnover.

Our marketing panel will consist of food and beverage brands Rebel Kitchen and Primal Pantry, with, respetively, head of marketing Natasha Harden and founder Suzie Walker sharing many of the marketing ploys that have got their businesses noted and won new customers.

And in our final sessions, we'll sit down for a fireside chat with serial entrepreneur and investor Piers Linney, who will discuss the four pillars of building a successful scale-up business. Then our final presentation will come from multiple Startups Awards-winning Onfido's co-founder Husayn Kassai, who will detail how the business has gone from 0 to a $60m funds raised scale-up with a global client base just six years after the founders left university.

Why are we hosting Startups Live?

Now in its 15th year, the Startups Awards is the UK’s longest running awards scheme for recognising the country’s most exciting new businesses. Over the years, we’ve celebrated early stage businesses which have gone on to become household names and fast-growth companies - innocent, Secret Escapes, Purplebricks.com and Bulb to name a few.

This year, as well as celebrating even more start-ups and the organisations that help them grow, we wanted to do something special for those companies that are earlier in their journey, who are maybe 1, 2 or 3 years away from becoming a Startups Awards potential winner.

This is why we’ve introduced Startups Live - an afternoon of education, inspiration and connection for early-stage founders like you, and your leadership teams.

Your ticket gives you unlimited access to all workshops and sessions, alongside complimentary food and drink AND the chance to pose any burning finance questions you may have to The Start Up Loans Company.

Register your details today and you'll also be entered in to win a free profile feature of your business on Startups.co.uk. Standard tickets are priced at £10.

Don't miss out, get your ticket to Startups Live today!
