Hi all,

Here is a quick update about tonight's business networking event:

- The good news is that we now have two incredible speakers, who will share their experiences with us.

- The bad news is that our pool of 50 FREE tickets run out and the few tickets that are left are available for £5.

In our series of events for Startups and Entrepreneurs we have teamed up with successful startup Founder & CEO Rose Adkins andThe Mansion London. Getting funding for your startup is not an easy task. It distracts from focusing on building your business and can be very time consuming.

How to Get Funding with Minimum Effort?

Our high profile speakers:

First Speaker: Founder & CEO of screenhits.tvRose Adkins.

ScreenHits was born from the idea that there had to be an easier way to screen, buy and sell content. They decided to build an online marketplace, one that would not only make content acquisition simple and cost-effective, but also provide viewer feedback on the shows consumers most wanted to see on TV. Rose will share her lessons learnt on how tostart a business and raise capital successfully and efficiently.

Second Speaker: David Collet, director at OPTA

OPTA is the world's leading sports data company. They collect, package, analyse and distribute live sports data and statistics. David will talk about big data and share with us the story of OPTA, especially about it's fund raising and it's EXIT to digital sports media group PERFORM.
