    Quick question would I disturb this meetup if I arrived later than timed? I will be coming from a pre-booked days event over in Neasden.

      Hi YvSay, At the moment, Startup loans are only for 18-30s but hopefully this will change soon. If you are looking for finance for your business come along to one of our windows of opportunity events. We'll be in Reading on Feb 21st and London on March 5th. The events are free to attend and will give you information on all the latest ways to raise cash for business and help you decide which is right for you. Hope to see you at one of the events!

    Hi there
    Just joined the group. Oitij-jo> celebration of Bangladeshi creativity (www.oitijjo.org) for this weekend at the Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, Sounthbank, SE1.
    The event will host a fashion exhibition and live fashion show curated by Central Saint-Martins, UAL and Artakt.
    The loom inspired design engages with the wealth of Oitij-jo Bangladesh, into which original Jamdani Sarees are woven together with contemporary garments advocating a creatively vibrant future.
    This weaving of generational narratives becomes the stage for the choreographed dance performance 'Woven Air' by Rezia Wahid and fashion exhibits.
    Group members will enjoy this unique exhibition, talks and performances. Discount for members for the evening tickets which covers all events and activities for the day. Just enter 'oitijjofamily' in the promo box when purchasing tickets on-line.

    See you @ Oitij-jo!
