Founders Exchange January

  • Jan 25, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

After the resounding success of our first Founders Exchange meet up we're committed to keeping this puppy into 2013 with a Jan Meetup on 25th.

Same location - James Smith building (the one with the pharmacy and shoe shop in it), Level 4 (come to the back of the arcade and up the lifts NOT THE STAIRS)

Slightly earlier time: 5:30pm

Same format: drinks thanks to our sponsors, nibbles (feel free to bring a plate) and then two short war stories from members. And as before, if there are issues you want to share with the group - offers or requests for help - there will be a chance to sing out.

War story One:  Anna Guenther (Pledgeme) will share her experiences studying a Masters in Entrepreneurship.  How it's helped (or otherwise!) with her own start up, what she learnt, what she didn't that she hoped to, what she wouldn't have missed for the world, how she chose the course, unexpected benefits and....well that's up to Anna...

War story Two: Julia Forsyth (Your Big Ears) will reveal her top tips to align personal and business goals - well at least how she finds ways to manage and enjoy juggling a family and a start up AND a co-founder who's also her husband...

Hope to see you there - and please spread the word.

If you RSVP and then can't make it - PLEASE change your RSVP status so we don't over cater...

      Hi Marie-Claire - I said on the night that I had 2 at home, but it turned out 1 had already been donated to my partner's parents, and one has a dead battery and no charger! So, off to donate to your pledgeme instead :)
