    I seem to have lost the guy from Taylor Wessing's business card. Does anyone have his email address or even name to hand? Thanks

    Michael Waschnig was a brilliant host, with his comical top hat. I loved the fact that the audience could sway who was awarded the top prize by voting via mobile phone where our voting and questions to the pitchers appeared on the screen backdrop. The night ended with complimentary Dominos Pizza – very nice! Met some very interesting people – the entrepreneurial energy that is emerging during this particular time is so exciting!
