Last time: Female Entrepreneurs’ Dinner with Maxine Laceby co-founder of Absolute Collagen.

Despite clear evidence that companies founded by female entrepreneurs perform as well (or better) than their male counterparts, there remains a discrepancy in support – from funding to mentoring – that women entrepreneurs receive.

This event looked to challenge this imbalance and raise the visibility of female entrepreneurs in the region with tips, advice and collective discussion from influential businesswomen. The conversations were underpinned by the expertise of our partners, Burges Salmon and Coutts, whose support enables female entrepreneurs reach their full potential. Watch the interview here.

March 21


We discussed entrepreneurial growth and success with one of the co-founders of video games media business, Network N‘s Tim Edwards – the world’s largest independent games media business.

From kitchen to multiple-million pound valuation – how? What risks, what learnings? How did it scale up and manage growth with the team? And what next..?

And this just in: we also had full details of how and why it is restructuring corporately – what it means for Network N, and what it might suggest for your company…

All of this and much, much more was covered in a highly stimulating discussion of entrepreneurialism. Watch the interview here.

September 12
