Description

Join us to learn about some of the Basics of Building a Business


Whether you’re thinking of starting a business, aspire to be an entrepreneur, or you have already begun the journey, this event provides an opportunity to hear from an entrepreneur and three professionals who have enabled the development of his venture.

There are elements that are common to all new companies. How you set up and handle your accounts, create your brand and manage the legal bits as you move the company across different stages of it's evolution. These may not make your company product or service stand out, but if you get it wrong it can kill your company.

To explore these areas of running a business, the B3 series introduces ideaSpace founders and the professional service providers that have helped them along the way to discuss how they approached such issues and what they think it is important for entrepreneurs to know.

This month, Gonçalo founder of SyndicateRoom will introduce:

  • Gary Hanson, Audit Partner with BDO Accountants & Busness Advisers who will talk about considerations in setting up a company, early stage funding options and share some stories from the front line.
  • Jas Bhogal, Corporate Solicitor at Harper James Solicitors who will talk about the legal aspects of raising venture capital funding, along with some of the common pitfalls and things to watch out for.
  • Mario Prelorenzo, Founder & Managing Director of jDj Brand Strategy & Design Agency will discuss the reasons why startups should invest in branding sooner rather than later and how to create a memorable brand.

Together they will advise you on what you should consider when you set up a company and share some of the common mistakes they see made as well as top tips on what the successful entrepreneurs get right in their areas of expertise.

Learn some of the proactive steps you can take to avoid making mistakes that can have a negative impact on your business.

There will be the opportunity to ask questions and we will end with an open discussion to explore these topics further, followed by networking with Pizza & Beer.
