Startup Investors Open Forum

CBN in Association with Pivotal Tribes Meetup group is inviting you to this event with a panel of experienced startup investors and intermediaries (Crowdfunding platforms, angels and VC firms) to discuss what they are really looking for when they back a company.

The idea is for the event to work a little like the BBC's Question Time and get lots of input and discussion between the panel and the audience.


Our confirmed panelists are:
◦Simon Dixon, CEO of and director of the UK Crowdfunding Association;
◦Damian Ryan, Managing Partner of Mediaventura;
◦Ryan Janssen, VP at m8 Capital (a VC fund specialising in mobile tech);
◦Stuart Hillston, CEO of Constellation Capital; and
◦Avin Rabheru, angel investor, entrepreneur and VC at Smedvig Capital.

Format & Timings

We will start at 6.30pm with some general networking combined with getting though the food and drink before holding our formal forum between 7 and 8.00pm, followed by some more networking and chat afterwards.

Again, there is a small charge to cover beer, wine and soft drinks, as well as some great Indian food (veg and non-veg). If you can, please pay when you register, otherwise you will need to bring £10 in cash with you on the night.


Some of the areas we'll cover include:
◦Executive summaries, pitch decks and business plans;
◦Online and offline networking strategies;
◦Proof of concept;
◦Founder teams and personalities;
◦Intellectual property;
◦Due diligence processes; and
◦Business structure etc.

Networking, insightful discussion and hearty refreshments!

Hope to see you at this great evening!
