Paul Ince, a new tech startup is eager to share his experiences with other founders. Working in the technology partner space for 15 years, Paul Ince was tired with putting forward new ideas only for someone else to reap the benefits. Leaving the rather comfortable 9-5 world to set up a business has been a risk and a challenge, particularly as he knew absolutely nothing about being an entrepreneur. In this talk, Paul tells the story of his journey, how he convinced others to be involved, and the lessons he’s still learning as he launches his social selling service, Thryyve.

The topics he will cover are the following:

Why he left his existing employer
How he got involved with his business partners and challenges around this
How he came up with the idea behind Thryyve (and what Thryyve is)
Market research he undertook and how that allowed them to push forward
How he then developed using Lean – inc. his involvement with Lboro Uni
Issues he experienced (legal, trade mark, fear of someone developing it first)
Today and the beta programme
What to do next
