Market Gravity, a Deloitte business







"When you're getting ready to launch into space, you're sitting on a big explosion waiting to happen.” Sally Ride, American Astronaut

Launching a venture may not put lives in danger, but innovation teams may feel like this at times! It’s exciting. The days, hours and minutes leading up to launch speed by…and there’s always the underlying possibility of things not quite going according to plan.

So how do you go live and avoid venture death?

Join us at this informal breakfast event at the Market Gravity 'Arches' and you’ll have the opportunity to discuss the challenges you’re facing, and gain valuable insight on how to navigate them. You’ll hear from our community experts including Neil Hinwood, new ventures lead from Unite Students, Sam Flynn, senior business transformation and strategy business manager from HSBC and Alan Ferguson, product operations and technology director for the AA. Neil and his team have recently launched ‘Conker’ and navigated the challenges of working as an entrepreneur from within a big business. Sam and team created open banking app 'artha' in collaboration with fintech startup Bud. And Alan and his team created Car Genie, a connected car solution - one of the first consumer led offerings in the telematics space.

The Market Gravity team will share their experience and knowledge on how to get your ventures live having worked across various sectors and with big business like HSBC, Automobile Association, Boots, Visa and British Gas.
