We’re also thrilled to have Innocent Smoothie founder Richard Reed and Just Eat CMO Mat Braddy join us to lead masterclasses for our startups. Richard is well-known for his key role in the incredible Innocent Smoothie success story, but his more-recent involvement as a founder-turned-investor is the topic he’ll be expanding on. Mat too played a crucial role in his company’s success, taking Just Eat all the way to IPO (the first company to list on the LSE’s High Growth Segment); he’ll be sharing key learnings across growth and marketing.
Indeed, we’re thrilled to welcome all our high calibre mentors, some of whom have travelled from as far afield as Russia, Singapore and the US to be here. They’ll be working with our startups all week, providing sought-after feedback and sharing their invaluable knowledge.
A big thank-you goes out to our yearly sponsor Amazon Web Services who will be hosting one of our mentor days at their shiny new office, followed by a party with panoramic views of London! We’re also proud to host the very first event at Runway East, a brand new workspace in the centre of Old Street; sponsored by another of our wonderful partners, Silicon Valley Bank.
Finally, our thanks goes out to Google for Entrepreneurs for their ongoing support in hosting us at Campus, where our team is based, alongside some of our portfolio companies.
