Come and Join Us at our new Enterprise Space at LUSEP in Holywell Building for our second

‘Drinks and a Share Up’

We want to Share Up our exciting news about how the Incubation Space is creating a go-to location for pre- and early-stage start-ups.

We’re keen for this to be a supportive, collaborative environment to help budding businesses grow. So, in addition to meeting companies’ accommodation needs we’re planning to provide business support and development workshops, mentoring, and access to funding opportunities.

We also want you to have the opportunity to make some new connections and meet interesting companies that might (you never know) lead to exciting collaborations. So if there is something you are looking for, support, skills, knowledge, we will have a Share Up board for you to put it on. Don’t forget to bring your Business cards.

This month we are delighted to welcome Ryan Palmer Founder of The London Sock Company (https://www.londonsockcompany.com/ to share with us some of his experiences around business trials and joys.

After gaining a BA in English Literature and Sport & Exercise science, as well as a Masters in Marketing and Management from Loughborough University, Ryan joined global technology consultancy Accenture in 2006 where he spent seven years in business development.

Surrounded by the corporate uniformity of the City, Ryan began to notice how few chances modern gentlemen have to add personality to their Monday to Friday attire. Aware that the men’s fashion market was on the rise, he saw an opportunity. Partnering with good friend and colleague, Dave Pickard, Ryan left his job in September 2013 with Dave to launch London Sock Company. Knowing that pulling on a great pair of socks in the morning can transform not just your style, but your state of mind, their vision was to build a global brand that inspired confidence and self-belief for its international community of wearers.

Now in its fifth year, the London Sock Company has sold over 500,000 pairs of socks, shipping to more than 90 countries worldwide and gaining loyal following among rockstars and royalty. Its celebrity fans and ambassadors include the likes of David Gandy, Daniel Craig, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds, Tom Hiddleston and the England rugby and cricket teams.
