Description

Adventures in risk taking, for high growth businesses

Are you a risk-taker or are you risk-averse? The nature of high growth business means you’ll need to take risks at some point, and some big ones at that.

Our next High Growth Entrepreneur event is all about taking risks. Our panel of experts have been there and still wear the t-shirts. They will share their experiences, how they’ve tackled risks head-on and whether their decisions were the right ones at the time.

They’ll look at these key points:

  • How the risk grows the longer you’re in business (you have much more to lose than when you’re starting out)
  • Employing people and the associated risks - letting go and reducing the control you have
  • When a lack of focus poses a risk
  • Supply chain risks
  • Having a strong brand personality
  • Staying on the right side of risk
  • Building risk into your growth plans
  • How do you quantify the risks you take?

Hear from our panel of successful entrepreneurs:

Nick Southgate- Managing Partner and founder at Imagine Capital, a boutique investment and advisory firm, specialising in the entertainment sector. Prior to this, Nick was the CEO of the Shed Media Group, one of the UK’s largest television production companies. Nick led the sale of the AIM-listed business to Hollywood Studio Warner Bros. in 2014. Nick was a co-founder and Managing Director of Brighton based TV production business Ricochet, which sold to Shed in 2005.

Melanie Lawson- Melanie launched Bare Biology in September 2013 and has single-handedly built the brand from scratch into a profitable and scalable business. This strong challenger brand has been snapped up by premium retailers including Planet Organic, Liberty and Whole Foods. In 2016 she won the Brighton NatWest Entrepreneurial Spark Entrepreneur of the Moment and Most Accelerated Business Awards.

Alex Vaidya- CEO and Co-Founder of Marketing Software start-up StoryStream who are based in Brighton and London and work with global brands such as Porsche, Volvo and KLM. Currently Alex has grown the team to 34 people and successfully raised Venture Capital to accelerate the growth of the business. StoryStream was selected by Techcity UK as one of the UK's most promising UK Growth start-ups.

All of these entrepreneurs know what it’s like to grow quickly and grow big.

The session will be facilitated by Si Conroy from Scarlet Monday.

There’ll be a chance for a Q&A and networking. Wine and light refreshments will be provided.
