Event description

Description

Have you just hatched the worlds greatest idea *ever*, but feel a bit unsure of how to take it to the next level and make it all actually happen?

GA have teamed up with Angel Investment Network to co-host an evening for all you aspiring founders, makers, doers, and entrepreneurs out there with the aim to bring some clarity to what happens after you've hatched the idea — and what it takes to approach investors, go through pitch-after-pitch-after-pitch, and ultimately raise your first round of investment.

No matter which sector you're in, what idea you're sitting on, or what product you're building – this evening will be for everyone and all wanting to hear first-hand stories and insights from our truly inspiring and diverse expert panel.



Speakers

Olivia SibonyHead of Impact Crowdfunding – Angel Investment Network, Seedtribe.

Liv started her career at Goldman Sachs before leaving to launch her foodtech startup, Grub Club, which she sold to Eatwith in 2017.

As an ex-founder, she was only too aware of the challenges entrepreneurs face in raising funds and wanted to help make this process more efficient and transparent. So, she then joined Angel Investment Network (having raised money for Grub Club through them) to launch and grow SeedTribe, a spinoff platform focused specifically on connecting “impactful” businesses with investors.

She is also a Board member of UCL's Fast Forward 2030, which aims to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs to launch businesses that address the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
