Each month we host a series of inspiring events open to our local community (and they're free!).
The first in a new talk series will address matters around raising funding in London's highly competitive food and drink industry.
Kissing frogs and raising capital can at first glance, have much in common. Cold leads, warm leads and leads with no tangible outcome are known for being part and parcel of raising seed capital. But with the right connections and addressing the right issues, each and every stakeholder can be satisfied. Join Adam Hyman (CODE), Chris Miller (White Rabbit Fund) & Olivia Sibony (Grub Club) to discuss the discipline and aptitude required to ensure timely, favourable terms from intelligent capital.

It's hard to imagine a life without anxiety, even if that's not what you happen to call it. A big presentation, board meeting or base jumping are just some of the moments you might prefer to avoid. But perhaps with a different mindset, these matters might make your palms sweat a little less, or not at all. Join One Thought's Aaron Turner as he uncovers the often overlooked and optional nature of stress and anxiety, so you can get on with even the most auspicious of moments.
