Event description

Description

Join us at University of Glasgow's Tech Start for the next in our series of meet-ups for aspiring technology entrepreneurs. Our meet-ups bring you a range of inspiring speakers - from undergrad students who are just starting out with their first app venture, all the way to experienced CEOs who have built successful businesses. The message is simple: creating your own start-up is hard work, heaps of fun, and an unparalleled learning experience. All delivered with free pizza and refreshments, plus lots of opportunities to network with other prospective entrepreneurs.

This month our speakers are:


SEONHAID MACDONALD

Seonaidh was, until late 2016, the CEO of mLED Ltd, a world leader in micro-displays for Augmented & Virtual Reality products. In 2016 he led mLED to a hugely successful trade sale to Facebook, delivering a double digit exit multiple. He is Vice Chairman of The Lennox Partnership, a Social Enterprise organisation.

With over 25 years of international executive management experience in IBM, Babcock Marine Clyde Ltd., and elsewhere, Seonaidh is a street smart, goal-driven senior executive and entrepreneur, with an outstanding record of maximising growth within the most competitive of international environments.

Seonaidh will share his experience of leading mLED - a University of Strathclyde spinout company to an amazing acquisition.


ELVIS NONSO NWEKE

Elvis is a recent graduate of the University of Glasgow. He's Founder and Director of Recruitment for StaffToday - a web-based platform that brings employers with short-term and last minute job vacancies together with people looking for casual work. He's building his product and building his company.

We'll hear what inspired Elvis to start his own business, about his aspirations for his budding company, and what he's learned so far as an entrepreneur. Elvis also worked as a User Experience Specialist for Occulus VR.
